Vases have a function, but they can also be anything you want them to be—any shape, any material. Everything we’re working on at Tiffany has an interplay of extraordinary quality and refined design, but also an unexpected contrast between things like sterling silver and mouth-blown glass, or Nymphenburg porcelain and tougher, studded diamond points, or an airy, ethereal tube of glass and something artisanal. As for my favorite flowers, I prefer greens like branches or a plant like quince. I’m actually not a big fan of flowers. —As told to Vanessa Lawrence
