Here's some more information from the designers:
A vase evokes the water cycle, snap shot of a subtle natural harmony.
The dynamic of the water is accentuated by the rigidity of a glass bubble that surrounds.
This vase is the result of a meeting between computer technology and a French high quality craftsmanship. Realized by a glass craftsman, Wilfried Allyn, who has implemented the necessary technique to realize the vortex.
Composed of two parts in borosilicate glass. The main part and a small cup which receives water.
Available in 3 different sizes at Gallery S. Bensimon, from 9th of June
Limited edition (21 pieces)
