As early as the 16th and 17th centuries, there was a practice of setting Asian porcelain objects in gold bronze or silver to make them more attractive to Western collectors. Vases became candleholders, were given lids or decorative handles. An act of ignorance or successful mediation between East and West? In the context of my research of Heinrich von Liechtenstein's world travels, I took up the tradition and brought old vases from Schloss Hollenegg's Rumpelkammer to life with new functions, materials and accessories. The result is a collection of contemporary mounted porcelain.
