element cylinder vase

This would make a nice, simple hostess gift (with flowers, ofcourse) for any of the upcoming holiday parties you may have been invited to. It’s a perfect way to show appreciation without breaking the bank.

Pipe dreams. A length of parchment stoneware gives the impression of industrial concrete pipe, honed porcelain smooth and cool to the touch.

• Soft matte grey with subtle specks of dark grey

Bubble Bud Vases

Unique white bud vases with a lil’ bit of texture to set them apart from all the other white bud vases.

“The bubble bud vase is made from porcelain, unglazed on the outside and with a fine pale glaze inside. Each is created by hand, not cast, and the bubble pattern is unique to each vase. They are heavy and feel great in the hand – add a delicate flower stem or display on its own. Choose from short or long necked vase.”

Thinking of You Vase Covers

Hurray for recycled vase covers that are particularly pretty- packed flat, they arrive ready for you to unfold and arrange. Do I need to point out that these would also make lovely gifts?

With his Thinking of You Vase Cover, an ordinary bottle is transformed into a centerpiece. The Vase Cover arrives packed flat, and is easily assembled around your found object.

Paper Vase: Low Bottle

A long, long time ago I think I posted some vases just like this but in a different shape. I think I might like the shape of this one ever so slightly more.

“Fun, sculptural shape with a delightful surprise: each piece is made from pages and pages of bookbound, recycled newspaper. The paper has been fanned around a recycled aluminum vase insert to create a form that is soft and pleasing to the touch. The insert is removable to allow for easy filling and cleaning.”
