It is a unique object, each vase made differently to the others, and nuances of the making process are evident on the surface of the vessel.
The base plate is 2mm thick. This vase is made from a fine brass tube and can bend if not treated gently. It holds only delicate flowers.
The brass used is buffed to a matte finish, and is left untreated so that the warm browns that come from being in contact with water leave a beautiful patination on its surface. This can be easily cleaned following the instructions below.
Brass is made mostly of copper, and during the soldering (making) process some pink from the copper in the brass may rise to the surface and be visible around the join. This is a beautiful marking of the hand-making process and is never the same on any two pieces.
This vase is stamped with its edition number 01225, stands at about 46cm tall, and made from medium tube thickness.
