Recycled plastic

The hills and valleys of the extruded changing vase serve to distort its contents: as distant petals and stems fracture shyly through the printed matter. Undulating plastic ribbons dip and stretch to form the amorphous pod, whose personality changes depending on the angle from which it is viewed. The changing vase gives second life to rooftop windows, industrial chocolate moulds, and safety glasses. This unlikely source material lends the vase its durability and twinkling transparency. Recycled plastic, much like wood, carries indicators of its history. Based on the previous life of our plastic, the transparent material can appear cool or warm. We are unable to control the tint of the plastic, though this is the joy in working with reclaimed material.
