Inspiration: Vessels of remembrance. When developing this idea, I started to look into Lachrymatories: the tiny glass or terracotta vessels, found Roman and late Greek tombs. It is believed that these vessels were used to collect tears when mourning a love one. I find this as a very symbolic and endearing concept to honor the deceased. So with the Solace Collection I wanted to create objects that embodied and paid homage to special ideas or souls in our lives.
