Marine Vessel

11.5 × 10.5 × 3.5

The Marine Vessel is an elongation of the Aortic Vessel, more similar to it’s original iteration, elevated on a foot similar in feel to that of the Bridge Handled Vessel. It is inspired by the curved oval forms of Japanese paper lanterns and mid-century lighting, but it’s boat-like belly is reminiscent of the sea. It can be used as both a vessel and a candelabra for thicker based candles.

Materials: Cast white stoneware, matte warm white glaze with slight crackle to surface. Smooth to touch.

The Marine Vessel is a footed, elongated iteration of the Aortic Vessel, which is inspired by the curved oval forms of Japanese paper lanterns and mid-century lighting. Combining his Japanese heritage into his lighting designs, Isamu Noguchi created the Akari collection which has remained crafted in Gifu at the Ozeki & Co manufactory since 1951.
