PRODUCTS FOR THE EXHIBITION
OUI - Oui is signed by Melvær and Anderssen in connection with their wedding. The vase opens up a personal everyday ritual for two people who are happy with each other. It is buttoned together at the top with something reminiscent of a seal. The two-part shape encourages new uses; the parties in the couple can each bring their own contribution to the vase, so that the bouquet becomes a composite expression of the two units that make up the couple. The shape of the vase is difficult to achieve and attracts the best of the glassblowers at Magnor. Each vase is stamped into shape, before the top part is cut and shaped so that each vase is unique.
