London Based artist Simon Hasan carefully molds leather using a 500-year-old armor-making technique, Cuir Bouilli, in which vegetable tanned leather is hardened through the application of heat. Hand formed in London, each vessel is one-of-a-kind varying slightly in patina, color, and size. This vase is from the collection of Hasan’s Fourth Generation Vase Family which is composed of three objects of various forms with brass fittings inspired by forms from early aircraft design.
