The Grid vase, was inspired by a combination of city influences. When I moved to London I was fascinated by British history and the strong medieval atmosphere I felt when I walked through the streets. I became fascinated by tales of the knights templar, Henry VIII and the Tudors and the endlessly rich history surrounding me. I came up with vases, inspired by suits of armour, helmets and fencing masks. My trip to Turkey was also relevant. I had visited the city and the beauty I had seen in Islamic arts and crafts was very inspirational. Beautiful armor and the essence of these two cities are very much behind this set of vases.
