Flower vase
The design of this vase is beautifully curved, like a dress when dancing the waltz or a ship propeller. The unique pattern on the surface is the result of a traditional casting technique known as  fukiwake that mixes two types of metal producing a unique marbled pattern. The copper alloy has a disinfectant quality which extends the life of cut flowers. Waltz retains stability, even when adorned with large flowers or branches thanks to the robust metal from which it is formed.
