Love It or Hate It? Bic Pen Vase

You've heard of blown glass, but how about blown plastic? These Giffin' Termeer Daisy vases ($19) are made from upcycled Bic pens that are heated until their plastic becomes malleable, and then blown into a bulbous shape.

i thought it was a repurposed crack pipe before i read the discription. its a neat idea, just the look isn't right.

I had to put undecided because I love the fact that they are recycled but I don't like the shape of it.

crack pipe. Reminds me of Grandma's Boy when she put's flowers in his bong because she thinks it's a vase...this is not as funny as that though.

First thing that came to mind = crack pipe. Therefore, not a good idea.

Junkies everywhere will be claiming their paraphernalia is really a vase! :rotfl:

Horrible! I dont want a crack pipe-looking-pen-holder-glass thing anywhere near me.

I would like the look even if it weren't made from a bic pen. But that's a great touch.

I think that is a cool idea though I think quite pricey. And yes, it does look a bit like a bong. lol

I was going to say looks like a mini-bong, but crack pipe is close enough ;)

I wanted to like it but I couldn't get over it looking like a crack pipe.

it totally looks like something you'd smoke drugs out of, but it's great that it's recycled and it's also a cool design!

Twinkle's right, but I do love it. The simplicity and ease (how hard is it to remember to replace one little daisy) make it such a lovely and minimalist addition to a desk

Umm, if I had that on my office desk there would be some serious unintentional intervention taking place.
