Crack Vases by Emerge ID

Crack Vase

“Useful brings useless, useless brings usefulness”: the ancient Chinese philosophy that inspired these Crack Vases by Emerge ID.

Taiwanese designer Jacky Wu found timbers in a factory that had cracked during the drying process and found beauty in their imperfections, saying that it tells the story of the power of nature.

Wu machined the pieces of wood to create vases and lacquered the cracks to highlight them as a feature. The designer also added smooth marble elements in contrast to the imperfect wooden bases, bringing use and monumentality to the otherwise useless material.
