Separation Anxiety by Mark Sturkenboom started with the notion that some families used to hide their valuable belongings in their violins, pots or vases, which were smashed to pieces when the need arose.
This started the idea for Separation Anxiety. This vase displays a compassionless farewell. Free yourself from your possessions by destroying them. This vase is not only meant to display a flower but is also a container for your valuable belongings like your money or some golden rings. When the leather cord is pulled, the spring releases a golden pin that will shoot the vase to smithereens.
