Sand Vase by Yukihiro Kaneuchi

This is a designer vase that will bring some freshness in your home. This is a perfect accessory for your home especially if the vase matches your interior. The vase name is Sand Vase and the designer is Yukihiro Kaneuchi. He is born in 1984 in Fukuoka, Japan. He studies Art and Architecture at the Tama Art University in Tokyo from 2004 to 2008 and is winner in many expeditions. The materials used for creating this vase are all natural. The designer used only sand and rise. In the middle of the vase there is a glass tube that holds the flower. The finished color is very earth and natural and will match almost all interior types.

This is what the designer says about this product:
Taking inspiration from the game ‘Bou-Taoshi’, I’ve created a series of vases made of sand and resin. The game is simple. First, players make a heap of sand and place a pole in the centre. Then each player takes turns removing sand, the one who causes the pole to fall loses. With its primitive element of creation and destruction, this game has been played for centuries. Here, the pole is transformed to a glass tube – time stopped with resin. The shape nears collapse, bringing a tension and delicate beauty to the flower.
In conclusion this is very good looking designer vase with steady shape. If you combine a couple vases in one spot you can achieve interesting composition.
