Work On The Wild Side.

Like observations from a jungle safari, his outrageous animal vases are just the thing to make spaces look a little less tame. These expressive beasts are bound to fill your home or office with whimsy whether you prop them with fresh flowers, stow snacks, or round up your pen collection. Designed by Michael Revil Madjus in Toronto. Made in China.

Flora Lam and Michael Madjus

Flora Lam Inquisitive and curious by nature, Flora uses her work as an excuse to ask questions, experiment, and implement ideas. When not designing, Flora spends time with her canine offspring and tending to her vegetable garden. Michael Madjus Inspired by the world around him, Michael has always felt the need to stick his hands in as many different creative pots as possible. With a background in fashion, art, photography, music, and most recently a graduate from the OCAD ID program, Michael feels his designs are influenced by everything that he has known and experienced. If there's anything that Michael tries to adapt to both his life and work is that life is short, so have fun, make mistakes and just live already.

    Comments about GIRAFFE AND HIPPO VASES:

    I collect hippos and am always on the lookout for more, particularly if they have a function and aren't just figurines or stuffed toys. This vase made a perfect holder for my collection of Mardi Gras beads, allowing me to drape loops over the beast's jaws.

      These wild vases aren't just for flowers and we're excited to hear how you would use this hippo and giraffe. The modern white sculptural heads are an artistic way to store pens, candy, kitchen utensils, and other objects in need of organizing, while the colorful little birds attract just the right amount of attention. What do you love most about these uncommon creatures?

      Too weird for my taste and they are not made in the USA.

      Melissa

      I love this! The only thing that would make it better is if it were made in the US, but seeing that some of your stuff is made in the USA, I can see that we're on the way to making everything in the US.

      I think they are hysterical.And I have to point out that this one was designed in Canada, not the U.S. as other comments state.

      All good except made in China. Is this what you want Uncommon Goods to be about??

      I like the giraffe, but have more need of the space provided by the hippo, which I don't care for. Would like to see this with wider variety of animals (lions, zebras...._

      Love them. Wish they were made in USA though. If coming from China, should only cost a buck or two.
