Decoration is reintroduced as a meaningful component in design. The merging of plate and cloth, which results from the embroidery, distorts the functionality of both items and can be considered a comment on the link between functional objects and compulsory conventions (eating). The patterns of the flower and the dragon are inspired by 14th- and 15th-century Ming vases in the Museum Het Princessehof in Leeuwarden.
