Vase d'Avril Petit

DESCRIPTION

The Vase d'Avril Petit is one of Tsé & Tsé's symbolic creations. It has a metallic structure with 21 interlocking glass tubes which can be articulated in numerous ways. You can fragment the vase into two distinct segments, and after removing one of the tubes from the chain, the two tail-ends can be joined to create a ring.

Better still, if you are lucky enough to own several, you can join them and stretch it out infinitely. A few flowers is all it takes to adorn this signature vase.

DETAILS

  • Dimensions - 10cm high, 13-55cm total length, each test tube is 3cm in diameter.
  • Materials: Glass and steel coated with zinc. After using it in water, the metal becomes oxidised: a white rust veil appears.
  • Care Instructions - To transport the vase from sink to mantelpiece, and/or to arrange your bouquet, it is best to firmly bundle the vase wholly assembled with both hands. Very gentle hand wash in luke warm water using a bottle brush with mild detergent.
  • Includes a handy spare glass tube. Extra tubes also available seperately.

ABOUT the MAKER

Tsé & Tsé Associées

Since 1991, Catherine Lévy and Sigolene Prébois have been designing objects they have then manufactured and distributed all over the world, under the Tsé & Tsé associées. Their taste for long lasting, easy to live with objects has taken them far from the ephemeral waves of fashion. It's not easy to date their objects - they are neither longwinded nor ostentatious; you appreciate them when you use them.

They are indeed practical, but they also like to surprise and please, stepping slightly aside from the usual, with beautiful colours and twinkling, humoristic references to details from many cultures.
