Daniel Michel is a product and jewellery designer based in Germany, and one of his recent projects includes what he calls a Google Vase.

As Today and Tomorrowreports, Daniel searched for 8 different vases on Google Images.

The rotation outlines of the 8 vases were arranged around a center and connected by minimal surfaces using 3D construction software.

Afterwards the textures were set on the surfaces and the vase was printed by a 3D-Printer in plaster.
