On, you can find this specific step-by-step project that shows you how to use basic steel sheets to create angular and funky vases.

For this project you will need sheet metal – preferably a large sheet of at least a metre square. To create the vase you will need to mark out panels of the vase, as this tutorial focuses on angular edges instead of having a rounded base.

You can play around with the style of sheet metal – a checker plate sheet would give a unique aesthetic, as would steel mesh!
