Sculptural vase made of brass
The Hydro Vase from Fredericia is visually inspired by classic ceramic vases and ancient Greek vessels. It is a modern statement that expertly utilizes the material properties of brass. Brass can be ideally shaped to resemble iconic pottery. Without treatment, the brass acquires a patina, making the material shine even more.
The designer Sofie Østerby creates with Hydro a balance between the visual impact of the brass and its form itself. The Hydro Vase is cast in a small workshop in Portugal. The dark, almost black oxidized surface makes Hydro to a vase that at the same time functions equally as a decorative sculpture.
