Book Vase / Ceramic Vase

Book Vase
Book Vase

I was inspired by a sight of A pencil placed in between book pages, however a book is an object conventionally viewed as not associable with vase, because it gets wet to hold water for flowers. Therefore, this design, by breaking the convention, presents a novel and romantic surprise to people who see a book-shaped ceramic vase holding a flower. Furthermore, unlike conventional cylindrical shape of a vase that occupies a larger space, a rectangular shape of this vase increases
space efficiency since it requires less space by placing it in between other books.
