Weld Vases, 2010


A departure from machine-made mass replicated plastic, the Weld vases are each individually hand-crafted and idiosyncratic, and therefore possess an inherent value unusual for plastic goods. Hot air welding, a process commonly used to repair broken plastic parts, joins the thin plastic shapes together creating strong and decorative edges. All of the plastic used in the vases is discarded off-cut ABS plastic from a local London plastic fabricator, and each vase is individually numbered on the base.
