These vases with heay bases were highly successful and became the a hallmark of the Oban range.The form was designed by Peter Fuin with each side flattend, rolled slightly and then elongated by swinging. The base was flattened using a pad on the floor. Each example is therefore unique in precise shape and size. In 1981, a standard sized vase cost £8.95 (equivalent to approx. £43.90 today).
