Introducing the Zipper Girls Vase Trio. These pieces are the core of the zipper series which began with Pretty Woman. https://www.aaturning.com/2019/09/28/pretty-woman-zipper-vase/ Each vase represents a unique character, personality and culture in feminine society. Twisted Sister named after the Rock and Roll band is about black leather and metal studs. Skinny Jeans is a tall leggy vase in tight fitting faux denim fabric. Biker Chick represents the Harley Motorcycle culture with leather and steel findings.
The series began as an accidental design opportunity. I was making a tall vase that developed a crack. There is a ton of potential in this piece and I could not give up on it. I placed it on a shelf where I could see it everyday. Waiting and hoping that a solution would come to me. Then one day the bells went off. How about adding a zipper to simulate making the vase whole again? Once Pretty Woman was complete I recognized the potential for additional wooden vases in the series. This is how the Zipper Girls Vase Trio came about.
This series won Honorable Mention in the Woodworkers Showcase, an annual event is Saratoga NY.
