Sketch up your Interior – Maya Selway’s Kishu Vases

27 Nov

British object and jewellery designer Maya Selway has created a collection which evokes the requirement to look twice. Is it? Isn’t it????.

Maya at work

Using the inspiration of a half finished sketch, Maya has created the Kishu vase collection. On first glance you would be forgiven for thinking that the bowls and candle stick holders were just a doodle, but look again and you will see that they are carefully crafted ( and weighted) objects which can create a little statement on your shelf.  Perfect for the minimalist.

Whilst a few of the collection are purely decorative talking pieces, the vase does come with a shallow dish for water so you can hold a flower should you desire, and the candle holder is fully functional. These fun talking pieces have won Maya second prize in the Object category of the 2012 Interieur Design Awards at the Interieur design biennale in Kortrijk, Belgium.

Let me now your thoughts…. meanwhile on with the colourful journey….
