ASHESrubber vases embracing the transience of life
In Baroque still life painting, the expressive quality of wilting flowers conveys the finite nature of everything earthly.
This series of rubber vases is a reinterpretation of this concept for the context of the modern household, acknowledging both beauty and transience of life.
A novel type of materiality was developed through combining the newest production techniques with handcraft. The process utilises 3D printing, rubber rotation casting and freehand modelling to produce a flowing, matte surface overlaid with a sparkling pattern of jewel-like dots.
