Alvaro Uribe turns the gas mask, a very strong symbol of war, and transforms it into a beautiful object using his incredible talent for arts and crafts.
The pieces are made of porcelain and the gas filter is actually a chamber containing water for the flowers.

Uribe was born in Miami in 1986, but he spent most of his life living and studying in Bogota.
