Peacock Vase

Material: Stainless Steel

In service: 2004

This piece, as much as any other and probably more so, was a learning experience. It was a failed attempt at a project I was working on. My wife pulled it out of the trash, threw in some peacock feathers, and hung it on the wall. I love it. It taught me that it’s not always about the pieces of a product, but the final product itself. It’s about how the parts work together. The vase is trash to me, and I don’t care that much about peacock feathers. But put the two together and I think it really works.
