Daum "Trumpet Vine" Cameo Vase


This Daum “Trumpet Vine” cameo vase of flat oval contour features trumpet vine flowers peeking through a field of grass and cat's ear (false dandelion) leaves. The vase has a subtle Martelé (hammered) pattern and a burnt orange/red hue that evokes golden hour. The trumpet vine was popular in the south of France, where may a garden have blooms covering a pergola or growing up a wall. Daum envisions the Trumpet Vine in a more wild setting, a beauty revealed amongst the weeds.
