Algae vase is made for seaweed, to give seaweed a platform for admiration in the way a vase does for a bouquet of flowers. Algae vase intends to animate the seaweed. While seaweed wet users weave and wrap it around the vessel. Once the seaweed is dry the top rack can be flipped, returning the seaweed into its vertical state. The intention of this appreciation is for it to live at our tables, to be the center of a gathering and see algae as something beautifully alive.
