The Yerevan vase by Sanna Völker is a personal memoir of time spent in Armenia. A sculptural interpretation of the contrasts, shapes and materials of the architecture in the capital city, Yerevan.
The piece was developed in close collaboration with Armenian stonemasons, from whom the designer gained a better understanding of the country’s heritage and culture. Inspired by the idea of pressed flowers, stems are delicately held between the two intersecting stone pieces that conceal a small pool of water. The piece is handcrafted in Armenian volcanic rock (tuff and basalt).
