In Praise of Flowers
Perceptions of Peonies.
Peonies were a favourite subject for impressionist artworks in the 19th century. They were painted to capture transient and usually accentuate the effects of the passage of time from the human perception and reality with fleeting effects of rays to illustrate overall visual effects instead of details.
How can a vessel play with the abstraction of impressionism to better transmit the beauty of Peonies that is more immersive than its original visual representation?
Shining and fading as she filters through the textured glass, the vessel was designed to recreate the touch of impressionism.
