This charming small white clay 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 body of the vase, invoking a sense of mouldability. At the opening, these edges create points, with dips on the rim between each point. The tone of the vessel is a cool stone hue, evoking calmness and serenity and intertwining itself with a natural aura.
