The ‘Port’ vase epitomises Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby’s long-standing interest in nautical design and fascination with colour. The shape is reminiscent of boating apparatus; buoys and fenders regularly seen around the waterways of Venice. The main body of the vase utilises Venini’s signature Coral red. The thick opaque glass is blown into a mould then cut to a precise angle at the base lifting the soft domed shape elegantly from the ground. The angular top vessel is made from black and white Murrine also blown into a mould. This vase is both a beautiful stand alone sculpture but also has a practical use as a vase
