Three piece vase inspired by African pattern design & Roman mythology. Height approximately 15cm (6 inches), Width approximately 17cm (7 inches)

The concept of this design is influenced by Roman mythology surrounding the god of Janus. The god of beginnings and transitions, who looks to the future and the past. I was thinking of how this influences us on a daily basis, depicting our moments of thinking about past events whether happy or sad and being hopeful for the future. How much time is used to contemplate both if not enough on the present, which resembles the base on which the heads and torsos rests.

Each head piece can be lifted up and be filled with water for flowers or you can use it for succulents or air plants. Each head/ torso rests within a lower body perched on tiny legs.

Handmade with care. All materials sourced from reputable UK ceramic suppliers.
