pablo. vase.

Flower vases and pictures have always had a strange relationship, mostly because people feel compelled to paint endless pictures of flower vases. The Pablo Vase combines the two so that the vase is the picture, and vice versa. Brilliant.

picture. this.
What really makes this vase work for me is that it plays with my sense of dimensionality. My mind sees "picture frame" and thinks 2-D, but it's really 3-D. My mind also sees "flower" and thinks 3-D, but then it sees picture frame and starts leaning back toward 2-D again. The end results is invariably a smile. (The 2-D/3-D effect is more striking when you see the Pablo Vase head on, instead of angled as in this picture.)

good. bad. news.
The good news is the Pablo Vase is pretty inexpensive at about $20 (correction: $45) per vase. The bad news is I haven't been able to find it for sale online. Searching for anything like "Pablo Vase" has been a bit hopeless because of that famous artist guy. I saw this one at Kasala in Seattle (photo take with Nokia 3650 camera phone). If you've seen one online, let me know.

Note: It sure looks and sounds like a Pablo product, but I can't find it on their site.

Note2: Lorena wrote in to tell me that has them. Thanks Lorena!

I just discovered your blog here, seeing how it was featured and all; I just went through your entire blog (thank goodness you only had 2 mos worth for I may have been here all night) andddd love it! All this gorgeous (sometimes hideous) furniture is right up my alley!

I wonder, what is it that you do that has you traveling all over taking pictures of furniture? And I am so curious what your residence looks like-- I'd be terribly jealous, I'm sure.

Strikes me you can make your own, by getting a picture frame you like and gluing a flower to it.

Or have I missed the point?

you could make a craft project out of it, but it wouldn't involve glue.. you need to have a suprising volume hidden in order to keep the flower hidden. I love the idea, and would also like to find one like it. Searching for Pablo is like searching for a haystack in a needle. or something like that.
