Eggshells protect the content of eggs and possess a kind of fragility that it can be broken even by a small life force. We may be able to create a container of entirely new values by applying these features to other form of products. We focused on the material, texture and cracks of the shell in this experiment. This time we rebuilt the shell to the shape of a vase and produced some flower vases that bear the functionality by breaking.
*Please note that you can not choose shape of cracks.
*It is a work reproducing the same strength (fragility) as eggshell. Please handle with care.
*Please enjoy it as a flower vase for dry flower because it is weak for water.
