Betta Vase (Blue 1)

The Betta collection was recently featured in the print version of the NY Times article, “You Call That a Vase?” Here is a quote from the article:

“What I think is appealing about a vase shape is it’s a little miniature piece of table architecture and really open to wild interpretation,” said Richard Wright, the Chicago-based auction house president and specialist in 20th- and 21st-century design. “I also think it’s the type of piece where a designer feels a lot of freedom. It doesn’t have to hold up a human being, it doesn’t have to bear a lot of weight, it just has to hold some water.” (And it doesn’t even have to do that.)

These sculptural vases are inspired by the flamboyant, vividly-colored tails of the Betta fish. The vases’ evocative forms, with bold curves and slices, are also strikingly feminine.

Micòl shapes these vases by hand on the potter’s wheel from fine English porcelain. The sliced geometry and edges are then meticulously crafted with hand tools. In the end, each vase is a unique work of art.
