This is a rectangular fabric vase that I sewed from my original photo design. I took my original photos of a butterfly, a feather, and a window, duplicated them and blended and collaged the images into a dramatic abstract design, with vivid patches of color.

I printed the design onto lutradur which I coated with Golden Paint's Digital Ground, a substance that greatly improves the quality of the inkjet print. I sewed the lutradur into a vase, using an untreated piece of lutradur for the base. One of the things I love about lutradur is that it is translucent. I didn't line the inside of the vase, so light shines through it beautifully, and really enhances the effect of the printed design. If you're interested in learning more about lutradur, I have written about it in my blog: http://GardenDelightsArts.Wordpress.com

The vase is not waterproof, so I include a glass vase for you to put flowers in it. Spot-clean the vase gently, if necessary - the inks are waterfast but not waterproof. I print with Epson Ultrachrome pigment inks, which are fade-resistant, but anything will fade if exposed to strong sunlight over a long period of time, so it is best placed out of direct sunlight. Lutradur will melt if exposed to high heat. You can iron the vase with a household iron, but a candle's flame would melt it. The vase is 3 by 8 inches (7.5 x 20 cm). Note that without the glass vase it is very lightweight.
