Our Creative Director Rebecca Hein talks about the inspiration behind the bespoke Canyon vase.

 The idea for the Canyon Vase comes from the idea of creating a wabi-sabi vibe around a new glass vase. The shape of the vase is inspired by old vintage vases from Japan.

“My goal with the canyon vase was to create a wabi-sabi vase with the feeling of complete zen”

HEIN STUDIO Canyon VaseThe structure of the vase is inspired by the Antelope Canyon. Antelope Canyon is a gorge located in the Navajo area near Arizona. The gorge has been shaped by water floods through the years creating its unique shape.

 

 As a child Rebecca went on a road trip with her parents and sisters to America, where they visited all the canyons and the raw and brutal desert landscape. A look through old photoalbums made Rebecca think about the surface of the Antelope Canyon.

 

“The unique shape of the Antelope Canyon is for me the essence of wabi-sabi, The imperfect perfect. I love that each angle can show a new perspective and aesthetic. And when the light hits the vase, it is where the magic shines through”

 

Each piece is mouth blown into a heavily carved steel mold. It takes 3 skilled glass artists to create each piece by hand.
