What do you get when you combine a Mondrian with a Monet in a 3D medium? We’d guess something similar to Phil Cuttance’s amazing Weld Vases. With a visual effect referencing the geometric assembly of a modernist, fused with the nature loving sensibilities of an impressionist, the Weld Vase is the perfect way to add some life-filled graphic punch to any space. Best of all, these tri-tonal pieces are also eco-friendly — they’re handmade from 100% recycled plastic.

Each Weld Vase has been constructed from recycled ABS plastic sheets discarded by a local factory and joined together using hot air welding techniques. Far from a product of machine-made mass production, every vase has been carefully handcrafted to create individual, decorative and idiosyncratic pieces – characteristics not normally associated with the mold-to-fit manufacturing of plastic goods. By taking an alternative approach to a material that has essentially developed a standardized mode of handling, Cuttance shows us that you can indeed teach an old dog – or material – new tricks!
