In the few small inches of a face there is room for a whole life story, a letter of recommendation, a character reference, an expression of self and soul. Our beauty and style are judged by these few inches and what they hold - an unrepeatable combination of features.
Like our faces, decorative glass vases present an outward style, shape & form, appraised by notions of beauty and art. The interiors are sometimes transparent and revealed, sometimes hidden. All vases are vessels, made for display, symbolically female.
Ikebana, the ancient Japanese art of floral arrangement, brings nature and humanity together with minimalist design & spiritualism at the foundation. The artist's intention behind each arrangement is shown through colour combinations, natural shapes, graceful lines, and the implied meaning of the arrangement. It encourages tolerance of differences and inspires appreciation of beauty in all art forms.
Arranging parts of the face in decorative glass vases to reach harmony and balance, challenges conventional ideas of beauty and art. Recognizable identities and characters emerge, expressed through colour, form and shape. Each character has individuality and familiarity enhanced by union of vessel and face, a new transcendent expression of female self and soul.
