This slip-casted vase serves as a physical and visual timeline meant to be embraced by florists and nature enthusiasts. It has five holes at the top and holds no water; it's sole purpose is to give a space to let the flower, stem, or stick dry out over a period of time. Starting from the left side, one can insert the chosen organic object into the hole. As time passes or as more objects are found, the flower (or stick) can be moved to the hole to the right and so forth until it has reached the very last hole. By then, the chosen object should be completely dried out and can be removed to be tossed out or to begin it's cycle once again.
This piece considers how the delicate and everyday interaction of life and death intermingle with each other. There is beauty in youth and, just as equally, there is beauty in decay.
