Ceramic Bud Vase 005

Jordan McDonald

McDonald’s familiar yet ambiguous references to historical architecture appear in these chimney pot-like tulipieres. Each is slab-built from imperfect foundational shapes, mostly circles and squares, with sprigged decoration that wouldn’t look out of place on a Tudor fireplace. Whatsmore is the visual play between the heavy, brick-like structures and the delicate flowers which they intend to hold.

A precious emerald glazed box with a humped top and single opening for a small group of your favorite flowers.
