Description

Tanja Pak has always enjoyed shelling pistachios and extracting delicious nuts from them. She has always found it magical how something soft, willing, emerges from a crack in a hard substance.
The miraculous shell split open and green and red and white and yellow bubbled up through it, all one life and budding….

The vase is a haven for different types of flowers, for those with long stems that sometimes like to show their beauty in solitude, and for those that flourish in bouquets with small or large flowers.
Due to its shape and the special shape of the opening, the vase provides firm support even for a single stem and brings out all the shades of the beauty of flowers and their arrangements in a unique way.
When filled with water, it acts as a lens and emphasizes the shape and color of the stems, creating an interesting graphic together with the flowers and its own contour.

Pistacchio vase is made from hand blown crystal glass in a very time consuming process. The opening, which resembles the opening in pistachio shell, is cut from the glass and hand polished.
