Simon Pearce - Orleans - Tapered Vase

$115.00

The Orleans Tall Vase’s generous height gives depth to abundant flower arrangements. The graceful, tapered opening helps hold the stems together, uniting function and form. Ideal for long-stemmed flowers and budding branches, the Orleans Tall Vase is a dramatic statement on its own, and sublime when filled with fresh flowers.

Story

A modern twist on ancient silhouettes, Orleans resonates with luminous shapes and a dynamic sense of scale.  This neoclassic collection was inspired by the recent discovery of a first century A.D.  Roman riverboat at the bottom of the Rhone in southern France. Sitting idle for centuries on the bed of this river in Arles, the magnificent barge contained a treasure trove of  ancient ceramic and glass vessels, each piece a romantic representation of the principles of simplicity and symmetry.  Our craftsmen seek to capture the connections between ancient and modern with the Orleans Collection. Working in a flow of synchronized precision, glassblowers draw on their immense skill to maintain the deep optic by hand, manipulating the molten glass to preserve shape without throwing off the balance of the glass. The process is particularly complex, requiring a rare mastery of proportion to maintain a leveled surface. With its wide optic and soothing flares, each piece reveals a brilliant spectrum of light. Handmade in our Vermont workshop, Orleans draws the eye with its magnetic style and graceful virtues.
