Inspired by the trumpet-blowing White Rabbit that Alice follows down the rabbit hole to Wonderland, Michael Anastassiades's Trumpet vases are produced the same way as the bell of this ancient wind instrument. He chose for one of the most traditional techniques of hand-turned metal, whereby a disk of metal, usually brass, is formed. Its diameter is then progressively narrowed to the size of a finger, which allows the piece to bi welded to the rest of the object's body. This process is used to build most wind instruments. In Anastassiades's poetic eye, it gives shape to flower vases whose convex underside curves up into the shaft as an ulterior connection to the shape of the object by which it was inspired. Made in Italy.
