Curation of this edition evolved from the idea that spiritual rebirth is a process of migrating the dead parts of self in to their new form. This edition is the physical representation of a reimagined idea. It is a nod to the precipe we cross leading to new growth and the interaction of our new form with it's surroundings. This edition includes the Reflection Vase, Photo Print and the Regional Archive (RA) Zine.
A perfect storm of function and form. No stranger to aesthetics, this vase is inspired by pools of meltwater in early spring - a combination of mud, dead wood, and dried grass from times past, mixing with the first green shoots of the season. Truly evocative.
This vase is intended to be used with one stem or a small grouping, with flora hanging over the reflective water surface. The design enables the stem(s )to be held upright, while also allowing for water to flow through from the wide base. Fill the base with water and enjoy the reflective play between the flora and fluid.
Alternatively the vase can act as a tray, incense holder, or a candle holder. Use your imagination to dream up all of it's potential uses.

Still Life with Mirror Photo Print
A visual meditation on our inability to simultaneously focus on something near and far. This photograph extends that fact to consider the difficulty and value of holding two things at attention. Light and dark, winter and spring.
The image visually depicts the duality between two stages of growth, in this instance a the presence of new growth alongside the dormant form of past growth.
Designed with two functions in mind, visual art for the place you call home or as a surprise in a loved ones mailbox. Equal parts frameable and shippable. Do as you wish.
210 x 148 mm (8.26" x 5.83")
The Reflection Vase and Photo Print were designed in collaboration with Mercury Bureau, a Toronto-based studio founded by Shane Krepakevich with a fundamentally collaborative approach, working across object design, graphic design, music, photography, and publication

Regional Archive (RA) Zine
A printed surprise designed in house with the talented Haus of Bas. The RA Zine is the studio's exploration in publication, and where we get to play with visual communication. Expect lose ties to the items in the edition, mood setting content you can revisit and the unexpected. The form and content of the zine changes alongside the celestial shift, emerging at the end of a cycle as an archive of the transformation.
*Edition includes one of each item listed.
