“The Seasons vases are inspired by the shifting colors of nature through a year.
The first vase is inspired by cherry blossoms and bright green leaves against the clear spring sky. The second vase dives into the summer sea with algae on the bottom and waves on top. The third vase shows golden autumn leaves gradually covering the green ground. The fourth vase interprets winter snow gently falling to the ground.
The pattern of the mouth blown vases are made using a technique that gives every vase an unique motif.
The vases can be used together or alone. By shifting the vases with the seasons, the vases can be used as a calendar reflecting the seasons outside.
The vases are one of three vase series made in collaboration with Magnor Glassverk in the summer of 2013. The three series are all more or less inspired by the Obelix vases, interpreting and playing with the motif in glass. The vases will be exhibited for the first time at Gave og InteriÃ¸rmessen at the Norway Trade Fairs from the 22nd to the 25th of August 2013.” Photos: Erik Five Gunnerud. kristinefivemelvaer.com
