MIAMI, FLA. — Antiques show promoters hope for a smashing opening day but this is not what they have in mind. A Jeff Koons miniature balloon dog in porcelain fell out of its display and shattered on the floor of Bernardaud’s booth at the DesignMiami fair November 29, marking a smashing opening day for the global forum for design, according to Artnet.
The magenta puppy was made of porcelain, and part of Koons’s limited-edition series made in collaboration with Bernardaud, the historic porcelain manufacturers, Artnet reported. Passersby reported that the figure just fell and shattered but the pieces were quickly cleaned up and the show went on without further incident.
