The Menil Collection collaborated with renowned Dutch artist Marcel Wanders to produce a limited edition Sponge Vase for the museum’s 25th anniversary. As the Menil celebrates its 30th anniversary year in 2017, we are bringing back this piece for a limited time at the Menil Collection Bookstore.
Each vase is unique: a natural sponge is dipped in liquid porcelain clay and oven-cured, leaving behind a perfect replica of its individual shape. The majority of the sales proceeds will benefit the Menil Contemporaries Fund.
To purchase, please visit the Menil Collection Bookstore.
