More often than not, vases are designed with simplicity in mind, serving as a mundane holder of something beautiful, which is why Dutch designer Klaas Kuiken sought to develop a way to efficiently create sculptural vases, which can be made from any glass bottle.

To create these interesting bubbling vases, the designer simply places wire around any glass bottle, and heats the vessel up. As the bottle expands, the wiring enables strange shapes to begin forming, creating unique designs with every attempt. This modified system is quicker and more effective than traditional glass blowing methods, which require expertise and precision to complete.

This inventive method brings about more accessibility to the world of glass blowing.
