"HEART" vase, 2014
Ted Muehling’s series of vases finally is available in gilded finish as well.
The “theme with variations” is provided by plants with long, soft leaves, extending downwards with the elegance of a ballerina “en pointe”. A single leaf is shaped to form a slender vessel which serves as a vase.
The leaves have been wrought from a single piece. The traces of the hammer blow correspond to Ted Muehling’s desire to emphasise the living, growing, unique quality of objects which have been produced by hand.
