COPPER FOAM VASES

The project seeks new applications for a relatively recent class of materials, copper foam, currently used in water purification filters. "Copper Foam Vases" explore the expressive potentials of this material with its large or small, open or closed cells and the characteristic colour of copper. The result is a series of copper vases and bowls which can be used as flower vases or fruit bowls. The advantage of using copper in vases for cut flowers lies in the antibacterial properties of the material, which prevent bacterial growth in the water. Interesting combinations are also obtained by using inner receptacles of glass.
