Liquid Cardboard Vases

Like a slinky, except it’s made from cardboard and can be a vase, so it’s better (maybe).

Equal parts vase and plaything, this amazing contraption contorts into myriad shapes. The cardboard’s unique honeycomb structure makes the piece extremely durable. It’s crafted from natural renewable resources -with a high percentage of secondary fiber-making it eco-friendly, as well.

Stingray Vase

Ah, the memories. I’d opt for no streamers, but that’s just me…

There were lots of ways to get around when we were young…pedal cars, roller skates and skate boards all come to mind. But from the banana seats to the baseball card spokes, nothing beat the classic bikes from the seventies. In honor of those hot wheels, we present the Stingray Vase, sure to bring back memories of every wheelie you ever popped. Hand-sculpted to resemble a handlebar grip from those classic bikes, this 14″ tall beauty looks great on any shelf, and is guaranteed to start up a conversation. Comes with removable streamers!

Colors: Black vase w/choice of red, white, blue, black, or mixed streamers.
Materials: Polyurethane rubber shell
14″ tall w/4″ diameter

Skin Series Bud Vases

Plastic heat-shrink tubing makes each of these seemingly delicate vases flexible.

The skin series vases are made of a heat sensitive plastic that when in contact with temperatures above 250 degrees will shrink in size. At first glance the vases appear to be made of a thin fragile porcelain, however once the vase is picked up it’s found to be soft and flexible. Because each vase is hand made and produced individually no two are exactly alike, however they all retain similar characteristics allowing the size and style of any vase to fit in with all the others.

7″, 6″, and 4.5″

Ficucia Magnetic Vases + Candleholders

These seem to be popping up everywhere online recently…

“Fiducia means faith or confidence in Latin – this group of candlesticks
and vases cannot stand alone, but only gain their function from being
joined together – the strong magnets that link them bestow stability
and flexibility. Configurable in a multitude of ways (you know we love
designs that can be played with!): as pairs, or in an infinitely long,
snakelike line, in a closed circle – as you like.”

Printing Vase

This felt cut-out simply slips over any wine bottle to transform it into a semi-proper vase. I especially like the lattice pattern (shown on left).

“Recycling meets design. Choose from 4 elegant patterns designed simply to place over your favorite memorable wine bottle to be recycled as a vase! Decorate it with your choice of any flower and/or dry plants.
Turn the pattern around and a plain cover (without the pattern) can be showcased as well depending on the setting or mood.”
