use

a question we are often asked in our studio is
“what do you use it for"?
(no doubt we cannot always fault them for asking!)
~ cactus vessel . . . !!! - by ceramic matters~
does it have to have a function?
it might be an inspiration of fantasy or aesthetically pleasing.

when invited for lunch, we might take a bottle of wine and
a bunch of flowers.
the typical frantic hunt for a vase somewhere in the depths of a kitchen cupboard makes me wonder;
does anybody have vases they are proud of?
it is always packed out of sight . . .

the rose thorn pot
shape based on the root ball, thorns and stem of a plant
you might want to add the flower.
(i'm so not arriving with a whole bunch of flowers)

if we designed a range of vases with no bottoms
- an independent statement of form and structure in itself -
would it be acceptable?
