The innocent little cyclamen plant that I desperately tried to keep alive at work has finally met a sad and disastrous end. When I got to my cubicle this morning it was a withered brown shell of it’s former self. Alas. Perhaps I should stick with cut flowers in pretty vases from now on. And first up – the Love is Blind Vase by Jessica Marie Lertvilai, available on Supermarket. Apparently M-Dashing is to vases, as I am to lighting – and the lady has some nice taste in vases.
Jessica collected love letters, transcribed them into Braille, and then transferred them in relief pattern onto the surface of the vase. Aka – wow. “The Love is Blind project is both a coded pattern and an abstract pixilated painting. The attempt is to show the crossing of boundaries that exists between language, art and design.”
I love when design merges with a deeper meaning.
Have a lovely week!
