Summary In the hands of experienced art and design historian Agata Toromanoff, Vases showcases the unprecedented scope and quality of today's state-of-the-art vases. From Ted Muehling's sleek, gilded "Goose Egg" to Glithero's botanical cyanotypes on ceramic and Joogii's color-shifting prisms covered in dichroic film, there are no limits to what contemporary designers can make out of what is fundamentally a container for holding flowers. An essential sourcebook for collectors, designers, and anyone with an interest in interior decoration, this book includes important mid-century to late twentieth-century vases and focuses primarily on the twenty-first-century scene, with a wide international selection of emerging designers from the younger generation. These designers translate their original visions into a variety of forms, blurring the lines between design, sculpture, and architecture. The pieces featured in Vases are contemporary works of art, worthy of inclusion in museum collections--where many already reside. -- Publisher.
