Like fruits or plant bulbs, the Obelix vases look like they are growing upwards, telling the growth story of the flowers inside. The care exhibited in the hand-made stoneware is continued through an experimental lacquering process that plays with the thickness and texture of the lacquer. The quality of the lacquer creates rough and smooth surfaces mimicking the skin of plants, fruits and vegetables. The juicy colours and brave stripes make the vases stand out with or without flowers. The vases come in three shapes and nine colour combinations.
The Obelix vases are exhibited for the first time during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2013. Kristine Five Melvær is exhibiting four new series of prototypes at her SaloneSatellite stand C-26.
Materials: Hand-turned, lacquered stoneware.
