I came across these for the first time at the Yokohama Triennale in Japan. 

The Japanese artist lives in Venice , this particular set of vases was inspired by the natural world and I fell for the beauty of the objects as much as for the names:

Via Lattea

Fiore di Mare

Fiore d'Acqua

Fiore di Neve

 Lacrime di Stella .....
