The Else vase has a graphic motif draped around the vase neck like a bold piece of jewelry. The motif both emphasizes and challenges the shape of the object.
The vase explores the variation between the subtle differences in color and the contrast between glossy and matte. This is done by the use of two colored layers with related shades. The upper part of the object shows the glossy top color, while the lower part is sandblasted to reveal the bottom layer of color.
Material: Colored glass

The Marie vase is blown in one single color that changes character with the dramatic curves of the object. The narrow sections of the vase are perceived as intense and opaque, while the curvy part is stretched and becomes more transparent. This way, the shape of the vase and the manipulation of transparency tells the same story.
