Each vase is named for a number like the numbers "from childhood that used to appear at the bottom of this type of glass."

"It reminds us of the childhood game we played that consisted of asking the question 'how old are you?' and then looking at the bottom of the glass to get an answer."

"So, the renewed use of this glass, like Proust's madeleine, combined with various cork hats, allows the vase to happily reintroduce this emblematic object into our adult lives."
