'Cerne' Vase, Clear
Buckle yourself up for this product. The Cerne Vase is a stunning piece of artistry by Samuel Reis, a Portuguese product designer who describes himself as a 're-collector'. Reis is known for his unique approach to design, where he incorporates elements from nature in his creative process. This vase is our favorite exmple he shapes the vases using hollow tree trunks (specifically, the carob tree) as molds for blown glass. This method gives rise to limited series of these objects, as the mold has a short life cycle. The Cerne collection, which this vase is a part of, is a tribute to the southern Portuguese landscape.
The vase itself is offered in both clear and amber glass, creating a warm, inviting glow. It's not just a container for flowers or decorative items, but a standalone piece of art that can enhance any space with its presence. The use of natural elements in its creation process adds thr touch of authenticity and nature that made it an easy yes for us.
