Squish Vessel by Rachel de Joode

80.00

- Microbial Life on Mars-

Handmade and marked with her fingerprints, the indentations of Rachel de Joode’s, squish vessels create cavities for holding stems of pale pink Astilbe, blue Larkspur, Scabious and Asparagus Plumosus.  Each fist-sized, flesh colored, ceramic vessel is unique, and you may get one that resembles a fossilized meteorite, a gruesome potato, or a mouthguard - all of them schematic possibilities of budding life on distant planets. 

*Please note each vessel is unique and sized slightly differently.  This is a limited edition of 13
