I was looking to design something fun and witty as well as practical and usable on a daily basis. In order to combine wit
and function, I wanted to try and combine opposites or place things out of context. I chose to cast a section of a log
in concrete for several reasons.
For one, the design carries a dialogue between artificiality and reality as well as permanence
and materials. The log’s natural cylindrical shape is perfect for a flower vase. Furthermore, the concrete captures
the intricacies of the bark, while at the same time being eco-friendly and water tight.
