Flower Vases Ashes BY Birgit Severin
A collection of vases exploring the Vanitas motif. Inspired by Flemish floral paintings, Severin designed delicate vases in various shapes that, together, depict the process of withering. Created using a combination of spin casting and the latest 3D-printing technology, the pieces were constructed from rubber, and feature a shimmering black surface covered with dots that look like small jewels. Severin, whose background is in psychology, now creates design objects within a bigger narrative, exploring topics such as “transformation, identification and belonging”.
