The Stalk Vase is one piece from the larger Valuables collection. Valuables is designed to display sentimentally valuable objects, things which possess memory or nostalgia. It explores how special possessions can be highlighted and ‘valued’. Stalk Vase is a quiet elevation of nature. It is designed to highlight but not overpower the flower as a ‘valuable’ and emotive gift. Though temporary, flowers are charged with meaning. When gifted, they say sorry, thank you, they can celebrate and they can commiserate.
