Description

Mouth-blown in the Giant Mountains of Bohemia.

The Gauge Vase takes on the behaviour of the flower. The weight of the water holds the vase upright. The vase ‘wilts’ as the flower drinks the water, letting us know that it needs watering.

Something is lost when we bring flowers indoors. The flowers are no longer animated by a breeze because the vase holds them rigid. The flowers cannot properly wilt when they are dying because the vase keeps them straight.

The intention was to design a shape that would contain liquid and, as the quantity of liquid reduced, it would lean over autonomously, without the intervention of a person.

Like any vase, the Gauge vase can be knocked over. Unlike any other vase, the Gauge vase will spring back up. It is designed for leaning and swaying and will return to where it best balances - upright when fully watered, tilting when thirsty.

The narrow neck limits the number of flowers so it does not over-balance.

The vase can pirouette and dance. It invites people to play... because the water moves inside - sometimes following, sometimes leading the sway of the glass - an irregular movement is created, reminiscent of flowers dancing in a breeze.

Cleaning
Clean soon after use with soap and warm water. Towel dry and let any remaining water inside drain, by placing upside down, safely in a corner. For more stubborn deposits, we recommend the use of decanter cleaning balls, which are included.

Overseas orders may occasionally be subject to import duties and taxes, which are added once a shipment reaches its destination country. We have no control over additional customs charges and as such, these charges are to be paid by the purchaser.
