Studio Wieki Somers - Thomas Eyck - Vase (1) - Narcissus, number 44/ 99
Pays-Bas - Post 2000 - Verre

A flat, round vase with an iridescent surface, which looks like a black puddle of oil. "Human beings are so in love with themselves that we forget how vulnerable nature is", says Wieki Somers. In the middle of the flat vase is a small hole which fits one flower. "All attention is directed towards that one flower in order to emphasise its beauty even more." The vase consists of a glass under-bowl to hold the water, and a glass lid with an iridescent surface. This effect is created by three plates of coloured glass merging together in high temperature.

This is vase 44/99

Work by Studio Wieki Somers (Wieki Somers & Dylan van den Berg) is part of various museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Centre Pompidou in Paris, Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

De Volkskrant: "incredibly beautiful vase with which the Rotterdam designer Wieki Somers represents water. This is indeed possible."
