These extruded and hand-built ceramic vessels are functional objects intended to bring awareness to the act of choosing, placing, arranging, and compartmentalizing. The forms are inspired by 17th Century Dutch tulip vases and retro futurist spacecraft and architecture. These functional fountain sculptures can hold your baubles and flowers at the same time! Candy, jewelry, greenery, it all looks good in this architectural piece. Each Container is a unique handmade sculpture, signed and dated by the artist.
Available in a taller version and a wider version, the tall fountain has a crackle glaze finish, the wider fountain is warm white.
