In every Marais vase, the materials -- colored glass and bleached hardwood -- combine to create an object that is both art sculpture and functional. Inspired by the natural beauty of the raw material, Abrantes designed each piece to speak for itself.
We named the vases after after these infamous AAPI women: Patsy and Grace.
Inspired by Patsy Mink, the first woman of color and first Asian American woman to serve in Congress. She was a champion of women's rights, an early and vocal opponent to the Vietnam War, and a leader on issues involving education, the environment, welfare, and civil rights.
