Amateur Michelangelos Can Sculpt This Marble Vase Themselves

By Andrew Liszewski on at

It's been said that sculpting a masterpiece from a chunk of marble is easy; all you have to do is remove the unnecessary bits. So even if they lack any talent, aspiring Rodins and Michelangelos can turn this Introverso2 vase into impressive piece of decorative furniture. All you need to know is how to swing a hammer.

The vase starts off as what appears to be a stack of marble coasters, but when viewed from the side, the curves of the vase hidden within are revealed. If you prefer the boxy look, you can leave the Introverso2 as is. But if your inner sculptor is begging to be let out, you can use a hammer to chip away the superfluous pieces of marble until the more recognisable shape inside is revealed.

The piece even seems like a great way for someone to vent their frustrations. Once it's complete and they've calmed down, it's ready for a calming and serene bouquet of flowers.

The piece is, for the time being, just a design project by Cactus Design, so we won't be seeing it for sale anytime soon. It's a really neat idea, though, one that could inspire children to pursue traditional crafts. [CactusDesign via Dornob]
