DNJ Paper – 'Large Gathering, Iron Oxide' Vase


Stitched paper flower vase, constructed from hand-made Japanese paper. The paper is Yokono washi, made in from the Mitsumata tree in Okayama Prefecture by the Ueda family, and it's distinctive red colour and texture is an iron oxide dye. This vessel has been treated with organic beeswax, and is water-tight. This vase contains a stone, which give it weight and allow you to change the vases shape and tilt. Please avoid placing it near heat sources or direct sunlight.

The vase comes with a lifetime re-waxing promise.

DNJ PAPER is a collaborative research project and fashion brand. Designers Daphne Mohajer va Pesaran and Jake Nakashima-Edwards use handmade Japanese paper (washi), made from the bark of the Paper Mulberry tree (Broussonetia Papyrifera) in small studios across Japan, to wearable items.

The designers use washi in traditional and nontraditional ways of making paper clothing in response to pressing social, aesthetic and conceptual questions emerging from contemporary fashion practice. These pieces are never "finished" and will change over time – let them wear, then be repaired.

DNJ PAPER was awarded the 2023 Uniform Commission for MPavillion 10, and exhibited at Australian Tapestry Workshop and Craft Victoria in 2023.
