Japanese designer Yukihiro Kaneuchi created a series of vases that resemble sand castles constructed on a beach.Except my actual sand structures were much more temporary.

Although conceptually the vases hinge largely upon one’s comprehension of an obscure competitive sport played by those enrolled in the national defense academy of Japan, I think they can be enjoyed regardless. I would love to have a set of these on my windowsill to remind me of the beach.
