The Trapped Vase collection is a set of four vases trapped inside a cylinder, exposing only vases’ very top and bottom. In spite of this, we still all recognize the object as a vase because of the familiar form.

As social individuals, we learn to recognize instinctively which functions correspond to certain objects. Watching children draw a variety of objects and seeing the essential shapes of chairs, tables, houses, and other forms emerge in similar and predictable form, we get an idea of the archetypes we all share.

In the case of these vases we implicitly have a collection of simple shapes that come to mind when we think of a vessel for flowers in the home.

The Trapped Vase show us that in spite of what’s hidden by the cylinder, we can still, by recognising just a fraction of the shape we know, attribute the archetype and correct use of the object as a vase.
