The Four Seasons Vase is designed by well-known Australian designer Robert Foster. Its distilled design comes from necessity: an elegant solution vested in simplicity. From the way it was made to the way it functions it complements many environs and fulfils its task.
This vase seems to talk to us: it says; ‘I was once uniform and symmetrical but something has pushed me askew. I am alive with suggestion. I could be part of a leg. Or an object shaped by the elements. I don’t stand quite straight, with a subtle lean I appear to wander about. I’m a fin cutting through the water or a person clutching a bunch of gorgeous blooms. My opening gleams like a silver halo and my vertical brushed surface moves upwards presenting its prized contents’.
The fluid organic form requires precision skill in making and hand finishing.
