Object find: Experimenta vases

Giuseppe Bessero Belti creates a vase of glass from old kerosene lamps, adapting flowers as flame and water as fuel.

These lamp vases are bottomed by 3D-printed nylon containers which hold water and are fixed with glass from vintage lamps.

Italian designer Belti is based in Paris and has taken inspiration from the evolution of paraffin lamps during the late 18th century to the second half of the 19th century.
