Round metal vases - beautiful patinas with understated elegance
We have made these vases by hand for more than thirty years. They are built from sheet brass: two discs are gently domed with soft hammers, then brazed together with a ring between them, which is textured with flowed bronze. The vase's feet are constructed freehand from bronze rod. Finally, after testing each vase individually for water tightness, we patina them using a range of patinas usually used on bronze sculpture.
The relatively small hole allows the vase to support spare flower arrangements as wide-mouthed vases do not. The considerable weight of the vase, especially when filled with water, enables it to support tall flower arrangements. See the edge-on view for the look of the side. Sizes of openings vary. The 16" vase is considerably wider in proportion to its size, and has three large openings to support small or large arrangements of very tall flowers.
The vases are also sculptural in their own right, and do not need flowers to make an artistic statement. They look great on their own or in groups of stepped size - whether all the same color or in several complementary patinas.
