Can you see the ultraviolet?

ultraviolet is a simple pitchers set, made of borosilicate glass. Two pipes, the big one and the thin one, communicate together. Two similar jugs where a simple rotation completely changes the way of use. Handle is the thinner one first, then handle is the bigger one. Jug is so renewed, at least until there is communication. You can curiously use them together on the same table or simply put a flower in… communicating vessels.



ultraviolet and cactus belong to COMMUNICATING VESSELS collection.
