The life of these potatoes or “Pommes de Jong” are grown in the earth of a 13th century cellar in the Bourbonnais in France where there is no sense of time, and dry later on while growing their sprouts. The transformation of these “Pommes de Jong” - from their flowers and bulbes with testicles to dried specimens - are subject to deformation and modification for two years before being ripe for a bath to become objects like jewellery.
