U Vase, 2017
The U Vase is the result of an investigation into ceramic slip-casting and material extrusions. The form of the vase enables unique flower arrangements, whilst maintaining a sculptural form in an environment when left empty. The U Vase is constructed from Stoneware ceramic in the singular production method of slip-casting.
