Standing tall, this silver flower vase takes on a cylindrical form. The body widens subtly and flows into a curved top, from which a dainty neck juts out. The graceful vessel takes on a dappled silver sheen that plays with patches of tones of dark and light. The metallic sheen is applied in a way that mimics the lustre of velvet and emits a soft reflective luminosity. Beautifully crafted, this vase presents a harmonious connection between form and the use of tones.
