This sculptural vase is part of Pia Maria Raeder’s renowned ‘Sea Anemone’ series, a set of biomorphic creations evoking the beauty of the ocean floor. Work by the artist is part of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, France.

The ‘Sea Anemone 23’ vase is made of 5,700 beech rods that are cut, sanded and meticulously arranged one by one by hand, before being lacquered. The piece includes a glass vase. The tips of some of the rods are hand painted by the artist in shades of pink and silver. Free from its limitations, the wood thus transformed into undulating and living forms enjoys a new freedom. A breath of life seems to animate this organic creation, as if nature, rather than being copied, had been felt and reasserted. “My experimentations on materials and biomorphic forms aim at creating pieces which are as vibrant, unique and surprising as nature.”

Inspired by organic structures, Pia Maria Raeder’s practice focuses on connection and a sense of wonder, creating artworks that induce a form of emotional and even tactile engagement between object and viewer.
