The Multivase Project is a voyage into unknown spaces of functionality. Each vase is a complete thought, expressed in clay. Morro II asks:

What if a vase could only hold four stems?

I wanted to explore what happens when a stem can only occupy one of 4 fixed spaces within the vase. This vase features a White clay for neutrality but is glazed in Sapphire on the interior for a great effect. Because arrangements can only be so dense the cobalt color peeks through and becomes a part of the bouquet, a kind of built-in backdrop.

The Multivase Project is also performance art: each work showcases a botanical arrangement created on-the-spot with foraged florals. When I went to create the arrangement it was challenging at first. It quickly became an exercise in frugality — you only have 3 narrow slots and one wide but shallow hole. How can you create a full, complex, and creative arrangement with 4 to 6 stems considering you can’t choose their arrangement?
