A Flower from Space Landed in this Vase

When making something in porcelain, the final function of the object is something I rarely consider.  That said, I was pleasantly surprised to find these vessels quite useful.  These otherworldly flowers seem to be quite at home in these classical vase forms.  After observing ikebana arrangements in Kyoto, I have come to believe flowers look best when there is a foil in the relation between the container and the flower(s).  By this, I mean a super rustic vase paired with perfect flowers; or in the case of the images below, perfect vases paired with strange blossoms.
