Introducing the Angelo Vase glass version of the Angelo plaster head. A serene plaster monk head transformed into a beautiful bud vase. This exquisite piece of art is meticulously crafted, with attention to detail given to every aspect of the design.
Years ago, Sebastien (one of our founders) was lucky to work on a restoration project of the Saint Sulpice Church in Paris. He found a number of plaster heads that were about 200 years old in the basement of the church and was able to keep some of them. These pieces were made with a technique used at the time of Rodin. We have been offering these very special pieces, cast from moulds made from the original sculptures of the Saint Sulpice Church in Paris for a while now and have decided to work them in glass.
The Angelo Vase is made of recycled glass moulded into the shape of a monk head, with intricate facial features and a peaceful expression. The head is hollowed out and transformed into a vase, with a small opening at the top for inserting your favourite flower.
It is perfect for displaying a single stem, adding a touch of elegance and sophistication to any room. It is a perfect addition to any home or office, bringing a touch of serenity and tranquillity to your space.
Add a touch of zen to your home or office with this beautiful monk head bud vase.
These are entirely made by hand and each creation is unique. Therefore, there may be a slight variation in color, texture, and size between each piece. On the base of each item, you can feel the pontil mark left by the glassblower’s cane. The presence of this mark indicates that the glass was blown freehand. This is the beauty of handmade.
