GAUGE (Crystal flower vase)

GAUGE (Crystal flower vase)

Description

Mouth-blown crystal. The GAUGE vase takes on the behaviour of a flower. The weight of the water holds the vase upright. It “wilts” as the flower drinks the water, letting us know that it needs a top-up. Something is lost when we bring flowers indoors. They are no longer animated by a breeze. They cannot properly wilt because a vase holds them rigid. A gauge is an instrument that shows the amount of something. The GAUGE vase indicates the level of remaining water, by the angle of its neck.


Jury statement

A lovely idea that functions well and is wonderfully poetic thanks to the play of balance involved. The overall design of the vases radiates elegance and high quality.
