The gold stamping patterned airvase catches light to create an impressive, sparkling display. This is a paper bowl that enfolds air. You can freely change its shape to use it as a tray for small objects, decorate a vase, gift wrap a bottle of wine or present it as a piece of modern art. The thin and lightweight paper gives strength and resistance to the bowl. By expanding and compacting it in diverse ways, you can enjoy the ever-changing patterns.
