The information below is from Arquer:


Funnel Vase

Funnel Vase (2010) is a ceramic flower vessel with a side opening in a funnel shape. The funnel helps to change the water without having to remove the flowers. The old water can be easily poured out through the funnel and replaced with fresh water, without a mess.

While being a very functional piece of design, Funnel Vase presents an original shape. The vessel has a gloss white glazing finish.

Funnel Vase is a challenging piece of ceramics since it’s made in one piece. The joint between the vase and the funnel holds the right angle making possible its production.

“I hope this vase will make the task of changing the water more gratifying”, says Arquer.

    cool and useful concept! its hybrid shape may not appeal to everyone but it's certainly an interesting idea.

    simple and effective, although if it was made from glass you'd also be able to see when the water actually needed changing
