Originally designed as champagne flutes for a Brazilian-Canadian fusion restaurant here in Montreal. The restaurant never got off the ground, but the dozen different prototypes sold like hotcakes. I kept one in storage and only recently discovered it while looking for perfect vessels in my transformation series.

The addition of the plant seems to remove the face vessel from the African influence and place it in the lavish estate of some long forgotten Roman senator. I image the plant will continue to grow and eventually deliver the feel of a jungle ruin to this small sculptural object.

Made from a heavily grogged stoneware, and glazed with a cone 6 black, glossy glaze. It is watertight and nice to hold in the hand.

Dimensions: W – 3″(base)/1.5″(top) x H – 8″ x D – 3″(base)/1.5″(top)

Available to own: $100 (plus shipping & handling, if applicable)
