Story Vase

The new issue of Vogue Living had been popped through the post slot at the shop this morning and was lying there waiting for me to gush.  It is a particularly great issue with lots of things I love so a few of them will make their way to my blog this week.

First up: Story Vases by the Swedish design group, Front that were on show earlier this year in Milan.  Story Vases tell the personal stories of five women from South Africa.   Each woman formed their own story into text by threading glass beads on to metal wires which were made into vase-shaped moulds, into which glass was blown resulting in stunning vases.
