Bigger isn’t always better, so New Zealand maker Phil Cuttance, who is based in London, has come up with a smaller version of one of his more well-known pieces. The small Faceture measures 170mmx60mm and can be used as either a bud vase or as a candleholder. It comes in six different colours, costs about $100 and can be purchased at the Pah Gallery shop at the TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre or on the maker’s website.
