Mangrove Vase

Jochen Holz
£250
Mangrove Vase by glass artist Jochen Holz and royal florist Philippa Craddock. Sitting on solid legs, this piece is reminiscent of the aerial roots of Mangrove trees, in order to elevate the display of smaller flowers. The floating vase and structural legs emphasise the optical qualities of water and glass, creating an enticing floral display which places the emphasis on daintier plants. An expert collaboration between these two masters of their craft.

Process

Navigating the possibilities and restrictions of the technique and material, Jochen favours borosilicate glass due its resistance to heat and suitability for lampworking. Lampworking is a technique in which a torch or lamp is used to melt the glass, with Jochen being one of the few makers practising the method in Britain. The glass is formed while in a molten state, by blowing and shaping with tools and through movement. Each piece is unique, individually considered and carefully finished by Jochen.
