Wood vases29. Nov2011

Wood vases is part of the experiment called The Iceland Project. The purpose of this project is to put together four designers from different countries (one is from Iceland) to work with local materials with local craftsmen and also to set up workshops for creating a series of objects that communicate the local customs and heritage.

Wood vases project concentrate on wood material trying to achieve more with less because mainly the wood used in Iceland is imported. Due to hard climatic conditions the larch and birch that grow in the country stay short and twisted and lots of waste is produce looking for the perfect wood board.
