Best seller! Observe the beauty and form of an oakling’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. Hand wash only.

The MoMA Exclusive Color versions of the Acorn 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 Acorn Vase is made in the UK and measures 3.9h x 3.9" diam.
The Cosmic Astra version of the Acorn Vase features iridescent glass.
The Acorn Vase allows you to enjoy this process simply: just fill it with water and place an acorn (not included) in the small chamber at the top, and watch it grow, day by day.
