Enthralled by age-old Egyptian designs and divinities, the Paris-dwelling artist created three pieces, to be shown at Design Miami/ Basel this June. Inspired by three gods, Ra (pictured), Osiris and Anubis, the vases are made by a ceramicist outside Venice and glazed with glossy white, matt blue and gold. Each comes in a series of eight. The vases may be works of art — see them in the Kreo gallery in Mayfair, “but you can always put flowers in them”, muses Fastrez. POA, basel2016.designmiami.com
