Dew (left) and Else (right) vases.

The Dew vases are coloured on the inside and have sandblasted stripes on the exterior. This creates shadows inside the glass wall, adding depth and texture to the monochrome colour. The vases are mouth-blown by Norwegian glassblowers at Magnor Glassworks.

The Else vase by Kristine Five Melvær has a graphic motif draped around the vase neck like a bold piece of jewellery. The motif both emphasizes and challenges the shape of the object. The vase explores subtle colour differences and the contrast between glossy and matt surfaces. The upper part of the object shows the glossy top colour, while the lower part is sandblasted.
