This vessel was on view in an exhibition entitled "Kate Malone: Inspired by Waddesdon" (2016), that featured over 50 new ceramic pieces created in response to to the gardens, archives, collections and people at Waddesdon Manor, the Waddesdon Estate and the Pavilion at Eythrope. Elements such as architectural details, Sèvres porcelain, three-dimensional planting, drawings, prints, maps and even passementerie (the tassels, fringes and braids that decorate the textiles in the house) find themselves reinterpreted in clay. The work was also inspired by an Indian Marble Sanchi sculpture. While this piece draws on the form of a delicate tassel Malone plays with scale and has created a physically substantial sculptural object more in line with the Indian sculpture.
