Tin Vases

1995 - These vases were designed after research into forgotten techniques. In 1995, Brekveld one of the first contemporary designers to embrace traditional crafts and use them to design new products. This series of tin vases is made by one of the last remaining tin industries in the Netherlands. An industry full of tradition. Certain products have been made in exactly the same way for over 100 years. One of those traditional products, ‘an old Dutch rose vase’, served as the basis for the new series of vases. It has become the inner shape of the new vase, as well as the carries of the new, somewhat floating exterior.
