Best seller! Observe the beauty and form of an avocado plant’s leaves and roots as they sprout in this bulbous glass vase. Designers Ed Spurr and Amy Hall Browne of ILEX Studio drew their inspiration from Spurr’s stint at Matthew Marks Gallery in New York. Spurr organized the flower arrangements for a dinner held for artist Ellsworth Kelly after the opening reception of Kelly’s exhibition of beautiful and simple plant drawings. The artworks opened the eyes of the designers to observe the form of leaves and to contemplate nature in a new way. The Avocado Vase allows you to enjoy this process simply: just fill it with water and place a pit (not included) in the small chamber at the top, and watch it grow, day by day.
 
The MoMA Exclusive color versions of the Avocado Vase are inspired by the colors of Kelly’s Colored Paper Image XXII (Blue Green Yellow Orange Red (1976–77), an artwork in MoMA’s collection. The Ilex Studio Avocado Vase is made in the UK and measures 6h x 6"diam.
 
The MoMA Exclusive Cosmic Astra version of the Avocado Vase features iridesent glass.
