Young Amsterdam-based designer Siba Sahabi has created a collection of handcrafted vases which reference the ‘aesthetic that was originally established by ancient Greek ceramicists.’ Named after the potters’ quarter in Athens, ‘Kerameikos’ is made entirely out of paper and ‘the series conforms to the present day value placed on antique Greek ceramics where the artistic skills and characteristics determine the price of the object rather than the material.’
