Lovers is the third in a series of head vases exploring interactions and emotions between two people in a relationship. This couple is a little more ambiguous in their feelings about each other.


Each vase depicts a head. The heads fit together like a puzzle - one head literally holding up the other. Each head can also sit in a different orientation, creating a new interaction or interpretation as well as offering the possibility of functioning as a flower vase.


Slab construction allows for new ways of depicting heads and playing with two-dimensional and three-dimensional forms. These pieces are made by combining reliefs of the left and right side of the heads. The volumes are derived by adding two more planes to serve as front and back of the head.
