The first vase in Kristine Five Melvær’s Seasons series is inspired by cherry blossoms and bright green leaves against a clear spring sky. The second vase suggests a summer sea with algae on the bottom and waves on top. The third vase shows golden autumn leaves gradually covering the green ground. The fourth vase recalls gently falling winter snow. The patterns of these mouth-blown vases are made using a technique that gives each vase a unique motif. The vases can be used together or alone.
