London designer Phil Cuttance created this range of vases by welding together discarded plastic offcuts.
Called Weld Vases, the pieces are made of ABS plastic sheet discarded by a local factory, joined by hand through hot-air welding.
Here's some more information from Cuttance:
Weld vases by Phil Cuttance.
Material: recycled ABS plastic sheet, ABS weld rod.
A departure from machine-made mass replicated plastic, the Weld vases are each individually hand-crafted and idiosyncratic, and therefore possess an inherent value unusual for plastic goods.
Hot air welding, a process commonly used to repair broken plastic parts, joins the thin plastic shapes together creating strong and decorative
All of the plastic used in the vases is discarded off-cut ABS plastic from a local London plastic fabricator, and each vase is individually numbered on the base.
The vases are available in three tonal combinations.
