Creating fantastic vases: 50 fun & fabulous ideas & projects
by Suzanne J.E. Tourtillott
More than 140 photos and drawings show just how beautiful a vase can be. Ten talented designers demonstrate that they can be simple to make too: they've created 50 bold, playful, and striking designs that even a beginning crafter can handle. Just start with a mass-produced vase or container, and embellish in a variety of ways. Wrap sheer lace over glass, decoupage a skeletonized leaf onto ceramic, or add crimped sheet metal to a galvanized garden container. A spare and strong glass cylinder wrapped in black vinyl and aluminum is thoroughly unique and eye-catching, while a slim test tube mounted in a frame makes a modern floral still-life. Hang beaded curtains on flexible heating wire round matching frosted glass vases. There's information on all the tools and techniques and ideas for displaying the final product. The results are fantastic.
