The pot refers back to an engineering term "Mating surface" defined as "areas of one or more parts coming into contact with each other." In this case, an aluminum tube comes into contact with a rubber foot. It is both an industrial component taken out of context and simply a vase. The object can be intended as sculptural or functional to accommodate flowers of all seasons. The feet are a signature aesthetic of designer Sam Stewart, whose use of bold, round features highlights often overlooked aspects of objects and furniture. Sam finds inspiration by observing details in the world around him, particularly civic infrastructure and hardware types. Thus, discovering potential in a new context, he moves his observations into home furnishing applications.
Please note: As true handmade and crafted objects, Vero’s products might present some imperfections and differences from one another; these are not flaws, but rather, distinctive and charming details that render each product unique.
