The latest work of Erik Olovsson is full of character. As though straight out of a Pixar film, he has created a series of vases that droop sadly on top of marble sculptures such as triangles, steps and more. This drooping action gives each one personality, as though they were embracing their inner Eeyore.

Dubbed Indefinite Vases, Erik Olovsson's work essentially turns such a decor staple into a work of art. He was inspired by the contrasting elements of the transparent versus the opaque, the geometric versus the organic and the fragile versus the solid. Each of Erik Olovsson's vases lets the material stand at the forefront, informing the shape and silhouette. Overall, it lends a quirky element into living spaces.
