Create your own artistic floral arrangement with the ALART "TWIST" flower vase. This is a unique vase consisting of a small glass bottle decorated with an inter-twining aluminum frame. The frame is twisted by hand and the shape is finely adjusted according to the climate of each season. This small attention to detail gives this piece a special artistic feel.  

With its appealing design and high-quality artistry, this vase was selected by MoMA, the Museum of Modern Art in New York and is one of ALART's long-selling products.
This vase emphasizes the natural beauty of flowers and their stems, and helps create an elegant flower arrangement. 

This vase is easy to use. We recommend using 1 flower with a leaf or 1 flower with a stem of greenery. Set the glass bottle near the center of the aluminum base. Take a close look at the twisted wire frame from above and find an opening that you feel will be an ideal position to set the flower. Gently insert the flower and set the end into the glass bottle.  

Flowers with curvature will have a better match with the curved lines of the aluminum frame and create an artistic composition. Here are some recommended flowers according to season. 
Spring: Stock flowers, Canola flowers
Summer: Green Foxtail
Autumn: Cosmos flowers
Winter: Gerbera daisies

Feel free to use whatever flower that may be available. Enjoy experimenting with different colors, shapes and sizes. 

Some notes when using this vase. As the glass bottle is fairly light insert the flower or flowers into the bottle with care. Although the aluminum frame may be fine-tuned, using too much force may damage the frame and is not recommended.
