Cork the limited line it's over...Fancy a brew?
The holes that subverted the meaning of the object have now been corked, and the object in its intended original form still stands. Although I probably wouldn't advise the use of these 'tea cups' as tea cups due to my make shift corking skills, they could be water tight and functional once again. The objects are valuable, delicate porcelain, and their journey of transformation has almost come full circle touching upon the 'functional' in their present form whilst retaining the trace of their life as art objects.
In terms of creative strategy, the altering use of the same objects initially existing as adapted multiples of the original object has been unintentional but successful.
