Stockholm-based designer Julia Olanders has used construction materials that are usually hidden in buildings to create a series of decorative vases for her Betweenness project.
The 15 vessels in the series were each made from fabric moulds of the exact same shape. Although they range in size from small to large, each has a bulbous belly and thin neck reminiscent of an Ancient Greek urn or a headless bust.
As the name Betweenness suggests, removing these materials from their original context hopes to question their easy, black-and-white categorisations as practical or decorative, something precious to be kept or something shameful to be hidden.
