Kittiwake suspended vase (dark CDs)

Original price was: £40.00.Current price is: £25.00.

The Kittiwake suspended vase has a frame made with two CDs cut to a diametre of 7.5 cm with a stainless steel suspension handle attached.  The surface has a satin scratch-brushed finish.  This holds a large glass test-tube.  The Kittiwake vase can hold single stem flowers or a small bouquet of flowers.  It can be used to root cuttings or simply to hold beautiful dried seedheads.  It hangs from a 1 metre fine stainless steel wirerope.

Debit/credit card and PayPal payments are accepted.  Postage included.

The Kittiwake vase has arisen as a delightful means to reduce waste still further.  I cut out the middle section of the discarded CDs and circles of aluminium, when making the frames for the paper-pulp vessels.  With two further cuts, this will hold the large glass test-tube.  This has become the Kittiwake vase.  The central glass vessel measures 2.7 mm outer diametre and 15 cm length.  The vase weighs no more than 200g. A fine stainless steel wirerope with a hook at each end is included.  This is attached to the suspension handle and will hang from a ceiling hook.  It can also be hung from a curtain pole.  If you are hanging from a curtain pole, please use the contact form to let me know, I will include a larger hook for this, instead of a smaller size.  Also let me know if you require a different length of stainless steel wirerope, I can provide a shorter section.  The hooks are made from the offcuts of the stainless steel branches of the mobile sculptures. This can be the foundation to a collection of these vases with different CDs frames and aluminium frames.

This is in the sale as there are flaws at the rivet points.  This is cosmetic, it is still structurally sound.
