THE POEMS-OBJECTS / Vases
Each piece of the ‘Poems-Objects’ series tells a story and speaks with poetic.
I wanted to create a new object type at the intersection of craft and design : the poems – objects. They combine lyricism and minimalism, abstract and figurative , emotions and timelessness. I attach importance to the whiteness of the pieces, because it offers consistency, structure and timeless to the object.
With this series of vases, I first chose an existing object, then I decided to cut and pierce it in order to create new objects without recreating a mould.
Reuse – redial – tell.
An other type of transformation : Piercing.
I decided to pierce holes inside a foot lamp to create a vase.
DESIGN : The landscaped vase.
I decided to cut and transform a foot lamp into a flower pot.
User value : A ” flower pot ” is a container used to grow a plant.
Aesthetic value : Butterflies flutter inside this floral space.
Symbolic value : This vase contains a landscaped piece of Nature . It defines the habitat within a landscape. Butterflies symbolise life that is cultivated in this space.
The figure of the butterfly is rich in interpretations. Among the ancient Greeks , it is the symbol of immortality. In modern times , it certainly represents the metamorphosis , but also the natural cycle ( seasons) or life cycle. Note that there is a close connection between the fragility and beauty of the butterfly and the nature .
Unlike the vase cut flowers , this piece contains the earth and the water source of life for the plant. The plant will grow and flourish.
Taking care on a daily basis and allowing it to grow , we not only cultivate the plant, but also our relationship with nature .
