Gilles Caffier is renowned for his unique technique in creating topical textures on the surfaces of exquisite, limited edition pieces. Born in France, he studied fashion and textile design before becoming an art director in Tokyo. He created his own studio in 1993 and began producing his work, with Yves Saint Laurent and Paco Rabanne as some of his first clients. Humanistic, born from the hand and nature, his pieces are sensual, sometimes unexpected, and the result of meticulous craftsmanship.
This unique, cylindrical vase is a soft mix of gray and white with an “elephant skin texture” on the exterior. The pattern, cut with dark groves, is a statement alone. Display as a standalone piece or fill the glass insert with fragrant florals or delicate branches.
