The Twisted Glacier is a functional watertight vase, 3D printed with eco-friendly, degradable PLA bio-plastic (derived from corn starch). The geometric, abstract alpine design - with spectacular twists and turns, evokes movement, and  maximises the light reflecting properties of silk-effect and translucent PLA.  


Large size is 20cm (8") high. Small size is 14cm (5.5") high (more suitable for desktops and side tables). Please refer to the scale photograph provided.


Twisted Glacier colours:

Silk-effect - Aqua, Orange, Light Silver

Gradient effect - Liquidambar (Gold, Copper, Smoke).  1-2 colours in small, 2-3 colours in large models.


Notes on texture:

SILK PLA is solid colour, light reflecting, with a slightly metallic appearance.

GRADIENT PLA -  Please note that the actual placement of colours is unique.  The photos for gradient colours are examples only.  The colour placement/percentage cannot be controlled.


3D printing is a craft, not a manufacturing process: slight irregularities are to be expected, making each vase perfectly unique!

  • If you've never seen or handled a 3D printed object before, our vases may surprise you.  They are incredibly light, weighing between 50 and 200 grams. Here's some important tips for vase care and handling:

    * Treat your vase like a handmade object. It is made up of hundreds of individually printed layer lines (not injection moulded).

    * To avoid breakage, do not squeeze hard, and avoid dropping (particularly on hard surfaces).   

    * PLA is not UV resistant, so vases are not recommended for prolonged outdoor use, or placement in very direct or hot sun. 

    * Half-fill your vase with water, and support from the bottom when lifting to avoid squeezing the vase.

    * To clean, rinse between uses with cool water, and drain upside down. Not dishwasher safe.
