Item Description

Caret Down Primary


Edition of 5

This is a vase for dried flowers created through a unique concept, where the flower is placed into the hole at the upper side.

Artist Statement:
The relationship between flower vases and flowers is interesting.
Water is necessary to prolong the cut flowers, and for that purpose flowers vase are made, but there are “flower vases to be decorated” to enjoy by looking at shapes and patterns separately. The decorated floral ornaments are placed in the Tokonoma (Alcove) or the like and become the decoration of the house, and they decorate the house rather than decorate the flowers.
I thought to make a thing with a different relationship than before by returning the elements of the vase that decorate this house to a flower decorating flowers.
In replacing floral organs with flowers and making a house (environment) a flower vase, flowers should be dry flowers to make them decorate from decorative objects, flower vases decorated simplify the shape and take decorations and use brass for strength Make an environment around the flowers. It expresses the flower arrangement to be decorated and the environment put in it.
Flowers wearing floral ornaments became flower vases to be decorated and vases were decorated with flowers.
