This charming Black Rust Twist Vase takes on a unique form, playing with edges and curves to invite curiosity. The vessel's body stands tall with three vertical edges that subvert expectations. Instead of linearity, the edges curve around the vase's body, creating a sense of mouldability. At the opening, these edges create their own point, with dips on the rim between each point. With the dappling of charcoal tones with the rough texture, the surface plays with light and shadow, almost evoking the softness of suede.
