The Curious Vase by Mianne de Vries

Yesterday, during a frustrating computer crashing moment, I ripped my stress ball up into tiny foam pieces and felt considerably better for it afterwards. I imagine the Curious Vase could provide similar relief. Created by Dutch designer Mianne de Vries, who recently graduated from Utrecht School of the Arts, the vase hides either two of four differently shaped vases inside once you smash the outer layer. An excellent venting exercise if nothing else.
