Drape Vase part of the Soane Collection has been cast partly from a 3D printed replica of Sir john Soane's Bust, The aptly named 'Drape' Vase is from the carved drapery of the bust. This heavy vase is made from black marble Jesmonite. The material subtly glistens and sparkles in the light.
Drape Vase dramatically contrasts between the flowing organic replica of the fragment, and the angular facades that attribute its function. It looks like a completely different vase from whichever angle you look at it.
The piece has retained the feeling of a fragment or a slice of the bust; this with the combination of the naturalistic white marble material will give the impression that you actually have a piece of Sir John Soane’s bust on your mantelpiece. The vase has been designed to hold one large flower or a small flower arrangement.
