  • Modgy Suction Cup Vases start out flat and expand with water. With the added advantage of a suction cup, Modgy expandable and collapsible vases will adhere to any clean and flat surface in your home, office, hotel, car, RV or any other place you can think of. Think of a plain window in your bedroom, a lifeless file cabinet in your office, an unattractive mirror in your living room or an old tiled wall in your kitchen. The vibrant designs and attractive colors are sure to make any space worth looking at twice. Add in a few floral stems or cuttings from your garden to add to the aura.

  • Katsushika Hokusai was a Japanese artist, painter and printmaker of the Edo period. He is best known as the author of a woodblock print series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji,  which includes the iconic print, Great Wave Off Kanagawa. 

    He did not begin this series until much later in his career at the age of 70. It was perhaps the idea of immortality associated with Mount Fuji in Japanese legends and culture that contributed to Hokusai’s obsession with the subject in later life.  The series was so popular that he added ten more works after publication. In his most celebrated print, Mount Fuji is small in the distance as an enormous wave curls threateningly over ocean-tossed boats. 

    A few years after his death, Hokusai’s prints began to circulate in Europe, and would influence artists such as Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, and Vincent van Gogh.
