Founded by Minoru and Keiko Takeuchi in 2002, Proof of Guild is a jewelry and flower shop primarily focusing on weddings. But for the first time ever, the boutique has produced a series of vases titled “Hands & Hand,” which is on display at DesignTide Tokyo 2011. Not only are the curious vases reminiscent of hand-holding, but they were also crafted by hand.

There is indeed something magical about these conjoined vases. They remind me a lot of the organic work of ceramic artist Ryan Takaba.
