The simplicity of clean shapes and elemental colors can provide a mental place for the mind to play. Three glass containers demonstrate what that meant to me this week.
An amber, contemporary vase of thick, flawless glass was exactly that catalyst for the three projects. It is a sculpture, in and of itself.
The ruby red vase is designed with practicality in line with its sleek modern shape. The base is heavily weighted in order to help prevent tipping. A sprig of ivy surrounds a couple of tall flowers to accentuate the vase’s shape.
The opaque, primary red canister-shaped vase is exactly what I would have custom ordered from a glass works. The 15 cm (just under 6 inches) height makes it perfect for bold, tropical elements that add complication to the composition.
