blake wright

i love when designers play with everyday objects- this series of ceramic vases was created by dallas-based designer blake wright as part of an exploration of the lifespan of a roll of toilet paper. this funny play on everyday bathroom objects is part of a one-off series by blake is now looking for mass-production possibilities or any companies that might be interested in producing the series. if you’re one of those companies (or just a consumer who’d like to order something custom) click here to shoot blake an email.
