n the 1950s, Pop Art emerged as a movement in the UK and the US. It is characterized by the inclusion of imagery from popular media like advertising, comic books, and run of the mill everyday items of cultural significance. The movement emphasizes the banality of its subject matter and makes a statement on society through the use of irony. The aim of the movement is to challenge the traditional notions of how art is supposed to be which puts it in contrast to Fine art. Some of the defining artists of the Pop Art movement are Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Keith Haring, and Robert Rauschenberg.
According to the company’s spokesperson, Freddie Boersma, “We are always looking for new ideas to infuse into our products. As designers ourselves, we look to the masters for our inspiration. We know that we can’t hold a candle to their genius but we try our best to incorporate the crux of their ideas into our own creations. The vases are an attempt at imitating the classic style of that era when the Pop Art movement was in full effect. We hope we have succeeded in our attempt.”
The Pop Art vase is available in two styles named OMG and POP. The product listing describes the vase designs as splashy, colorful, bold, and cheerful. According to the product description, this vase is perfect for those who love vintage 60’s stuff, classic comic books, and Roy Lichtenstein paintings. The website also claims that the shape and size of the Pop Art Vases are exactly as those of the iconic popcorn cartons that were used in movie theaters in the 60s. In case the Pop Art Vases are not a customer’s cup of tea, the store instead recommends their tray of vases which can be seen at the listing on the following page: https://madebyhumans.com/collections/for-home/products/tray-of-vases.
“As students of design and art, the feedback for these products would mean a lot to us. We are constantly trying to improve and feedback is the cornerstone to that growth. Just let us know your thoughts using the feedback form on the store’s website. You can even call us on our toll-free phone number during our hours of operation. We have been doing this for 25 years. We would not have survived all this time if it weren’t for keeping an open mind and ears. We would love to hear from you!” says Freddie.
