Nendo Dress-Up Vase

Nendo Dress-up vase - via Coco Lapine

Nendo made Three flower vases in collaboration with Ceramic Japan, a firm in Seto, an area in Aichi Prefecture historically known for its ceramics. The three forms make up a family: a heavyset ‘father’, a slim ‘mother’ and a smaller ‘child. Each vase looks like an ordinary vase from one direction. Viewed from the other side, however, each has its own ‘collar’. When we dress, our hair and clothing correspond to each other. These vases play on the similar relationship between the flower and the vase.The vases are unglazed white porcelain, for a clean, clothing-like texture.

Nendo maakt deze mooie vazen in de vorm van een familie: een vader, moeder en kind. De drie vazen lijken normaal als je ze van de achterkant bekijkt, maar bekeken van de voorkant hebben ze elk hun eigen kraagje. Wanneer we ons aankleden, kijken we ernaar dat al onze kledij bij elkaar past. Deze relatie wordt hier ook benadrukt tussen de vazen en de bloemen die je erin zet.
