The one-off vase is made of water-based resin, rotated inside a folded mould as it hardens. It is the largest that Cuttance has ever made and stands at 80cm tall.
Cuttance has chosen a unique mint green colour for the vase and documented the manufacturing process in these images.
He has also cast an extract from a poem by Lilian Bowes Lyon, a British poet who wrote about her experiences of the area during the Second World War, into the base of the vase.
See our earlier story on Dezeen about Cuttance's Faceture series, which also features a video of the machine he uses to make the vases, here.
Dezeen has been commissioned to curate a collection of products designed by east London creatives that live near to new housing development VIVO and we will be publishing more designs as they are added to the collection during the next month. See all the stories we have published so far here.
The designs will be on show as part of a collection of 30 works of art, fashion, sculpture and furniture celebrating local talent that will be exhibited at the Genesis Cinema in October and then donated to the VIVO residents – find out more here.
