In every MARAIS vase, the materials- colored glass, cork, and 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 by inspiring women of our century.
Our one-of-a-kind hand-dyed vases are made from a solid piece of Maple and then dyed using a unique process called Ice dying in our studio. Through this dying process, the dye separates pigment colors and organically travels through the water to giving it an unexpected and beautiful result. Each one comes out unique and one of a kind, resulting in colors of midnight, sand, and crimson.
Each vase is numbered and signed by the designer.
Approx Size: 3" dia x 6" h – 3" dia x 8" h
