Vase. A simple word that denotes to a simple-shaped, yet an important item
that has been a part of our lives for centuries.
Ancient Egyptians regularly placed various cut flowers and stylized
arrangements in vases during burials, for processions, or simply as decorations
on their tables. In ancient China, some vases were directly inspired by ideal
feminine curves, the others’ shape symbolised harmony of yin and yang, or they
were simply used for practical reasons – to store a variety of goods like
ginger, salt, oils and other spices.
Vases nowadays have mainly decorative purpose. They have various shapes and
sizes, they can be plain or fancy, they can proudly stand by themselves or
complete the beauty of the flowers they hold. Aesthetics goes hand in hand with
