Skyscraper vases are seemingly random assortments of miniature crystal towers. It appears almost immaterial in its multifaceted transparency. The vase assumes a different meaning when an organic form of a flower or branch is introduced inside. The composition is based on contrast between the liner and the organic, between transparency and materiality, between artificial and natural.

A Great Conversation Piece

This is a novelty clock.so do not purchase it if you are looking for a clock that will allow you to tell the exact time. It does keep good time but due to the movement of the minute hand it is hard to tell the exact time. I have received many compliments on this clock and I do like it very much. It is indeed a conversation piece.
