In Case Vase, designed by Sara Ebert:

“The perforated ornamentation on the In Case Vase provides a secondary and potentially life-saving purpose. Were an intruder to attack, the vase can be smashed and turned against the aggressor. The pattern creates optimal shards to aid in your protection.”

Richard Stone‘s sculptural works:

“Described as elegantly restrained, Stone’s works oscillates in scale from the intimate to the monumental and resonate with a range of influences from the art historical to the popular cultural and culturally referential.
Such works have included figures engulfed in ghostly auras of smooth amorphous wax, erased landscapes, carpets unraveled and suspended, assemblages of earth, flowers, salt and other delicate ephemera and performative works.
Both heroic and flawed in aim, these works evoke physical and conceptual states of metamorphosis and flux where sharp contrasts of light and dark are interwoven with grainy expressions of solitude and stasis.”
