This project started as a research on how to make a vase disappear, and is based on the way a chicken waterer works. A water container is placed upside down on a plate. The flowers are placed around the water container so that it seems as if they are growing directly from the plate from which they get their water. A framework keeps the flowers standing upright. 

This research lead to a photographic registration of the installations of the first try-outs for a publication in the Plant Journal, a Spanish magazine about plants.

Based on the outcomes of the initial research a small serie of one-off vases was produced. All made of combinations of various existing plastic and ceramic objects, which lead to the actual hidden vase for valerie_objects consisting of a stoneware or glass tray, a bottle in colored glass and united by a custom-made stainless steel frame in two heights and five different colors.
