Paper Vase: Low Bottle

A long, long time ago I think I posted some vases just like this but in a different shape. I think I might like the shape of this one ever so slightly more.

“Fun, sculptural shape with a delightful surprise: each piece is made from pages and pages of bookbound, recycled newspaper. The paper has been fanned around a recycled aluminum vase insert to create a form that is soft and pleasing to the touch. The insert is removable to allow for easy filling and cleaning.”

Propeller Vase

I am quite taken with the shape of this vase.

“Munro creates a vase that’s both organic and industrial in feel. During the firing process, each ceramic vase is placed in a kiln of burning wood. When the wood touches the surface, it creates unique patterns and subtle colorations, so no two are exactly alike.”

Hand-wash only.
8.75h x 7.5w x 3″ diam

Vase Maker

I think we’ve all seen this before but for some reason its genius is just striking me now.

“Vase Maker dissects the classic vase into its two functional elements: support for the flower and a container for the water that sustains it. You can place it upon a vessel of your choice – a wine glass, teapot, even another vase – to essentially design and redesign it with every use. The Vase Maker is a recent recipient of a design award in the RedDot International Product Design Competition.
Made of porcelain. Hand wash only.”

Ran-Over-By-Car Vase

Holy cow! Look at these! Craziness, huh? They’re results of accidents with cars!

“Before the accident, each vase is the same height and diameter and a bend at 2, 3, or 4 inches. Then there is the accident which makes each vase unique – transforming it, jarring it, scratching it – then black enamel is applied to the piece.”

2″ diameter x 10″ height

These are super cute and you could pay for them with pocket change.

Astéroïde Vase

I’m not a big “vase” person (prounounced either way), but this one is amazing. I’ve seen it before*, but I don’t think it was in the context of something that could be purchased. Each one has 24 facets so it can be positioned in any way.
