Light Green Vase Reclaimed V’ By Ellie Burton
This spectacular light green vase really conjures the imagination, bold green and black marks deep within the glass speak fronds of grass making their mark amid the graffiti and street art, the glorious vibrant green interior of the vase glowing all the way through to the surface provides a backdrop which underscores the power of nature to fight back against the asphalt.
The artist, Ellie Burton, has said her inspiration comes from the fascinating concept of reclamation by Mother Nature of urban sprawl, the way that structures created by man are disused and ‘reclaimed’ by the unstoppable forces of nature and the beautiful and unique colours and patterns that emerge from this light green vase as a result.
