"My work 'Made in China' consists of five bow ties made of porcelain using traditional blue and white patterns seen on commonplace rice bowls or vases. By combining a traditional Western garment with a quintessential Chinese choice of material, my work aims to build a bridge between the East and the West – it is taking the bow tie out of its classic fashion context and presents it in as an objet d'art that merges elements of both cultures." - Arne Eggers
