Each vase in the VANDALVASE collection represents a different story, but they are all about the meeting of art, architecture, fauna, flora, and urban calligraphy ( as I call graffiti).
Each year a few pieces of these vases are created, each representing my fascination with life and referencing a different phase of life. I often inscribe the decor with my own worlds and fantasies I have about different places. I can work on one vase for several years, as the vase has to mature into its decor. I literally seep into the vase, you are buying a piece of my personality with the vase. I only create when I am happy.
This vase is inspired by Jičín, where I come from, and the Baroque painting by Karel Škréta - Annunciation to the Virgin Mary, which was discovered in the church of St. Ignatius in 2010. I painted a detail from this painting on a vase and added the gold tag of the Jičín witer.
