Phrenology vase

“BLOOMing Marvelous.”

This vase is based on a Victorian Phrenology Head that I found at the Portobello Antique Market in London a few years ago. I’ve worked a lot with Phrenology heads in the past, so I combined my love of this idealized human head form with my passion for arranging flowers. The results of which is this quirky, albeit slightly macabre vessel. The Vase can also be used to plant useful kitchen herbs, ancient bonsais, local succulents or grass seeds for green-fingered hair-dressers. Either way, turn your thoughts into a fountain of blossoms and greenery with this Phrenology Vase.
