Boule Astro Darksnow
Manufacture des Emaux de Longwy
The superb round vase, with gently falling white snow against a deep, midnight blue sky, finds its origins in the very poetic universe of traditional Japanese engravings. When artist Eric Hibelot was commissioned by the Manufacture des Emaux de Longwy to create a new design for their world-famous Boule vases, he turned to Hasui Kawase for inspiration. (For more information about Eric Hibelot, click here.) Numbered edition, limited to 8 copies. Read more

This magnificent vase truly captures the intense beauty of a moment in time, as snow begins to fall on a moonlit night. Each round snowflake is placed in precisely the right position to create the sense of harmony and tranquility found in Hasui Kawase’s engravings of the 1930s, and echoing the circular motifs found in many of Eric Hibelot’s own contemporary signature works.
Why we love this: Contemporary minimalism for the most demanding connoisseur.
