Snail Vases show a different view on the use of discarded objects. It is turning them into a podium for the snail vases climbing them. The snail vases need the object for support and putting them into a different mind-set. Suddenly you can make use of those little things that got broken, stopped functioning or got replaced by a newer range. My grandfather’s typewriter still got sentimental value over a laptop.
The vases itself are highly adaptable in shape by using a leather shape. Mixtures of resin from trees combined with beeswax keep it watertight. Blooming flowers will celebrate the object even more.
