circle vase

While strolling around Place de la Madeleine last fall with C, we spotted this stunning circle vase at the Baccarat shop. C is a glass blower, and I fantasize about designing fine china, so we were drawn like magnets to the Bacarrat shop--we didn't even have to discuss whether we would venture in or not.

Designer Arik Levy recently won a well deserved Elle Deco International Design Award for the circle vase design. C says the vase is deceptively simple: it looks plain but is quite difficult to make. I have a feeling that next time she finds some time at the studio she will be attempting to learn the technique so she may apply it to her own gorgeous designs!
