This vase is hand-built from Grolleg porcelain. It reflects a Japanese influence and is designed so that the basket is a showpiece both without flowers and when flowers are placed in it. The handle helps hold flowers in place in their arrangement. The soft slabs from which the basket is made has a fluid, fabric like quality that gives the basket asymmetry and a sense of motion. The baskets are varied in the textures used and the shapes of the handles.
