Marked by a dynamic silhouette, this vase is a magnificent example of the unsurpassed metal-forging skills that distinguish La Fucina di Efesto. The spiraling movement is obtained by twisting the rectangular stainless steel tube over the open flame using manual levers and finishing it by hand with a mirror polish. Displayed with flowers or as a statement decorative object, this vase will make a striking addition to a modern home.
