This vase is a representation of the iconic bomb found in numerous comic strips and comedies. When a flower is placed in the vase the picture is complete, the fuse is lit. Thus, creating a contrast between urgency and tranquility.
The vases were created in collaboration with Dan Levy Studio in Manhattan. The black matte ‘glaze’ was achieved via numerous trials and eventually the development of a new technique, arriving to the desired matte yet satin finish. Subtle variations of tone and finish within each piece create a vitality that separates Levy's craftsmanship from that of factory mass production. Each vase is fitted with an engraved black anodized aluminum cap, milled on a four-axis CNC machine from billet to fit each vase precisely.
