Balloon vases. Inflated balloons tied with adhesive tape. Thin and fine shell, inspired by the technique used when dipping candles. The bound balloons are dipped repeatedly in liquid clay resulting ultimately in a shell that is hard enough to withstand firing. As the clay dries and shrinks the air is taken out of the balloon and eventually removed entirely from the pieces before the pieces are fired.

The result is deform and crooked vases, each with their own unique shape. Mass-produced as in a candle factory, but each with their own special posture and unique characteristics.
