Weld Vases Phil Cuttance

Using hot air plastic welding and scrappy off cuts of ABS Cuttance has produced heavily modernism influenced vases with very refined and simple geometric shapes and forms. Looking at the forms he may have been limited by the off cuts or he could have used the offcuts and cut them further than the original cut to a size he preferred and then went through the hot air welding process.

 

Although the bulk of the plastic is reused, the hot air welding process uses a plastic filler rod and creates a decorative edge to the symmetrical but handmade vases.
