This vase was inspired by the first spring flowers that break through the snow in Scandinavia.

In spring the first flowers start growing under the snow. The warmth that generates from growing +  the sun rays from above, together melt a hole in the snow, and the first yellow flower of spring, the ‘Leirfivel’ peeks through. There is excitement every year about who can find the first ‘Leirfivel’.

The humble yellow flower is  also known as Tussilago and Hestehov, and Coltsfoot in English.
