The Yerevan vase is a personal memoir of time spent in Armenia. An interpretation of the contrasts, shapes and materials that were experienced while working on a local NGO project. Developed in close collaboration with Armenian stonemasons, from whom the designer gained a better understanding of the country's heritage and culture, her piece is a tribute to Armenian architecture and to the people she encountered. Inspired by the idea of pressed flowers, stems are delicately held between the two intersecting stone pieces that conceal a small pool of water.
