Volume Vases is a series of three blown-glass vessels of different size, colour and proportion. The vases are functional objects, each consisting of two open integrated cylinders. Independent of each other, the outer and inner cylindrical volumes allow for a combination of live and dried plants or flowers, with or without liquid. Decorative in itself, the outer and inner glass forms overlap to create a deeper hue, resulting in a vibrant and colorful expression.
