Dezeen has commissioned London designer and Stepney Green resident Phil Cuttance to make a special extra-large version of his Faceture vase for the Stepney Green Design Collection.

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.
