Tall Euphorbia Vase

Jochen Holz
£440
Tall Euphorbia Vase by glass artist Jochen Holz and royal florist Philippa Craddock. Jochen was inspired to take a universal shape, like a classic cylinder, and manipulate the surface to redefine it's appearance in an organic, gestural way. The 'handle' attached to the form emphasises this dynamic, making each one a unique and practical vase for bigger or longer stemmed flowers. An expert collaboration between these two masters of their craft.

Due to the handmade nature of these vases, exact form may vary.

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.
