Graduate designer Daniel Rawlings has created a series of vases by heat-shrinking plastic tubing around broken crockery.


Rawlings completed the project while studying at Kingston University and exhibited it at graduate show New Designers in London last month.

Here's a bit of text from Rawlings:


Heat shrink series, a range of products utilising heat-shrink tubing (heat sensitive plastic that when in contact with a temperature above 150 degrees will shrink in size). A variety of household vessels comprising of reclaimed crockery brought back to life with heat-shrink. The heat-shrink shrouds existing vessels to exaggerate and extend their current forms whilst also reviving a lost functionality.
