circle + square vase

After two points of view were established, an imaginary quadrangular and pseudo-cylindrical shapes were stretched out from each viewpoint. The lines of intersection were then extracted to serve as the framework of the vase’s design.
From straight on, the vase appears distorted, but it takes on a quadrangular appearance when viewed at 60 degrees to the right and a cylindrical look from 60 degrees to the left. Placed at the entrance of a home or room, the vase shapeshifts with different impressions for approaching and departing viewers, as if to murmur welcome and ’til next time.
