A vase hand sculpted in salvaged paper. A paper mache form featuring asian inspired accents. Pages salvaged from a book on Chinese medicine and a handmade wire *handle evoke the feel of an artifact. Embellished with painted stitches and deep red cord to complete the look.
*The handle on this piece is decorative only and does not function.
This vase is special because it is sculpted over a salvaged plastic shell, to create a piece that can hold water, despite being made of paper. A part of my JAW (just add water) collection, this piece suitable for wet use and shatterproof. Makes a beautiful decorative holder for your favorite diffuser oil and reeds, too!

Papier maché is a tough, yet lightweight material. Though it won't shatter if dropped, it can be chipped, scuffed, or otherwise damaged if abused. Guard against heavy weights and excessive moisture. Finished with several layers of matte varnish. Intended for light use and decor. Not food safe. Wipe clean with a damp cloth.

*Not for use with flame or wicks of any kind.

Recycling and conservation is important to me. Unless otherwise indicated, ALL of my papier mache items are made from recycled paper and other reclaimed materials, not preshredded storebought mache.
