The Crinkle Bag Vase by Makoto Komatsu totes an ultra-modern design that evokes a certain shabby chic aesthetic. Created using standard plaster materials, the vase is white in color yet is fashioned after the standard brown paper bag. The hard shell of the piece is crinkled with intricate detail and holds a strong resemblance to its paper inspiration.

Housed at the Museum of Modern Art, the Crinkle Bag Vase is in line with other works by Komatsu that often evoke a scaled down aesthetic. Many of the pieces draw characteristics from everyday items including crinkled paper to create stark white pieces that are both simplistic in looks, but intricate with regard to materials. Made of porcelain, Komatsu's comments on the fragility of existence through the Crinkle Bag Vase and how we can interpret the world around us.
