Description

A fusion of sturdiness and elegance, archaism, and modernity. A distinctive feature of vases is how they all resemble sculptures. It is a functional piece of art adding a unique touch to any interior.

The material from which the vase is made is the result of various experiments. It is a mixture of several components: the largest part being paper pulp and cardboard. Although paper is often associated with fragility, when mixed with other materials and dried, it acquires the properties of wood, a natural texture, becomes strong, but is slightly elastic, so it does not split or crumble.
By using paper in his works, Žukauskas give it the properties of wood again: natural texture and strength. It’s like giving the tree a new life.

This material does not change color over time and is not afraid of moisture – dust can be wiped with a damp cloth.

All products are handmade and unique, so they may differ slightly from the image in the photo.

About Donatas Žukauskas Visit Showroom →

"Imperfection as a way to create beauty". Cracks, splits, random spots and unpredictable results in a sculptural plastic form, such imperfection fascinates me, I strive for it in almost all my works. I am an interior designer and creator of interior details from Lithuania. I have been creating sculptural interior objects for more than 15 years, combining sculpture, design and artistry. I create side and coffee tables, lamps, vases, sculptures and candle lanterns. I use a concrete-like material, which is the result of various experiments. It is a mixture of several components: the largest part is paper pulp. Although paper is often associated with fragility, when mixed with other materials and dried it becomes as strong as wood, it resembles concrete but is slightly elastic, so it does not split or crumble. It took a lot of testing to find the right ratio of materials to create a rough or smooth surface, water resistance, rigidity, and elasticity. By using paper in my works, I give it the properties of wood again: natural texture, strength. It's like giving a tree a new life. This is the third tree life.
