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.

Material: recycled ABS plastic sheet, ABS weld rod.

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.
