One of the advantages of having a skull blog is that it makes it a lot easier for your friends when buying you birthday or Christmas presents – the obvious choice is something skull related. So I hope one of my mates read this and do just that.
This glass skull vase, or jar, is perfect for those spring-time daffodils. I think there is a certain irony in putting your flowers in a skull vase as the only guarantee you get when buying flowers is that they will die. The skull represents our own mortality and now it can represent the flowers mortality as well. Just bloody perfect all round.
Jacky Tsai, a designer who used to work for Alexander McQueen, is currently working on his own fashion line. These decorative floral skulls are stunning and are part of a larger body of work which includes a number of prints, sculptures and drawings.
We’re glad to see you doing your own stuff Jacky. Hopefully we’ll be seeing more skulls from him in the future!
