Marie Liebhardt created a line of rustic metal vases titled the ‘Flaws Collection’. Each vase is made using aged copper and brass. The metal material is mixed with colored porcelain. Some of the porcelain does not stick to the vase after it dries, which adds a textured finish.

The vases were inspired by the deterioration process that happens to cities over an extended period of time. Each rustic metal vase resembles a worn building that has endured weather elements.

Each vase looks like it has been rolled in paint and blotted with a sponge. In an attempt to reflect the passing of time, Liebhardt, enhances each vase's irregularities. This process results in a vintage-inspired decor piece. The neutral colors of dark earth tones are suitable for any home.
