A few years ago Piet Hein Eek invited me to show one of my flower arrangements in his showroom. The work he choose consisted of 21 separate parts so I walked up and down his showroom many times to get all the pieces in the right place. While walking up and down I could not help noticing the beautiful ceramic vases in his showroom. This gave me the idea to make some smaller flowers for his vases. Piet Hein Eek on the ohter hand was inspired by my flowers as well, and decided to make a set of 10 large steel vases especially for my flowers. And thus a collaboration was born.
