Dutch graduate designer Sjoerd Jonkers has designed a collection of plastic vases inspired by archaeology and primitive objects, to be presented in Milan this week.
Called Neolastic Vases, the collection consists of four vessels of different shapes, sizes and colours and is an addition to Jonkers' earlier collection of Neolastic tableware (see our earlier story).
The objects are all handmade by pouring liquid polymer over a mould made of sand.
Photographs are by Dirk van den Heuvel.

The following information is from the designer:
Dutch design Studio Sjoerd Jonkers is presenting a collection of Neolastic vases. Neolastic is based on the principles of experimental archeology. The production techniques are primitive. Each object is handmade with plastics casted in sand molds. The objects present focus on simplicity and confront our views of modern civilization.
For the exhibition at Tuttobene, Jonkers created a collection of ten objects. All vases are handmade and so each one is unique. The Neolastic collection shows a broad view of colors, shapes and sizes of handmade plastic casted in sand mold. Sjoerd Jonkers can be found at the Via Savona 18, Milano at the Tuttobene exhibition.
