The Pixel Vases by Julian F. Bond resemble morphed Jenga and LEGO pieces. These unique geometrically patterned urns have a crystal-like body and a crisp finish.

Bond creates the vases using a pixel casting machine and a colored slip that creates a distinctly shaped product each time. Bond can tailor each vase to meet the specific needs of his clients, and the unglazed exterior shows the result of the moulding process.

Julian F. Bond graduated with a BA degree in architecture at the University of College London, and his masters in product design at the Royal College of Arts. He received a large amount of publicity after displaying his Pixel Machine at the 2010 graduation show. Since then, he has been featured on various websites including Dezeen and the Guardian.
