The Melbourne studio of artist Anna Varendorff creates conceptual works of art, that function as design objects for the home. ACV studio is dedicated to creating metalwork pieces — specifically vases — that are all individual expressions of the craftsperson who made them.
Varendorff’s formal training as a metalsmith and artist come together in her unique collection of limited edition brass vases for ACV studio. Embracing the qualities of brass, ACV vases are buffed to a matte finished — they are left untreated so that they develop a beautiful patina over time (unless of course, you clean them). During the soldering process, pinks rise to the surface of the brass — a nod to the copper basis of the material. Varendorff calls this a “beautiful marking of the hand-making process [that] is never the same on any two pieces.” These vases are one of a kind, and perfect for placing your delicate stems and floral roadside finds.
