The Fossil is the perfect vessel for dried flowers or as a sculptural focal point in a home, it is not water-tight. We recommend using a smaller vessel inside the vase if you would like to hold fresh flowers in water within the vase or oasis that you soak in water.
The fossil is named after its rough and stone like texture, The stoneware clay piece has an unglazed inner allowing for dried flowers, plants and as a structural art piece. The creamy colouring of its exterior means it works well as a subtle focal point.
The Onyx is a stoneware clay with a black pigment, making it a statement piece. With two different textures that differ between coarse and fine, the unique grain that can be seen bursting out of the clay walls adds a subtle depth to the already hypnotic piece.
The Silk Vase is made from Cornish and Scandinavian Porcelain which allows for a lot of fluidity in its design and form allowing for a hypnotic end piece With a double glazed inner, their ability to hold water means they can be accessorised with fresh flowers.
It generally takes between 4 to 6 weeks for an order to be complete. However, please take note that we go through periods where we have an influx of custom orders and the lead time may increase.
The beautiful thing about our vases is that every single piece is completely unique and different from the next. All of our pieces are handmade from start to finish, each piece goes through a very lengthy process to get it to the product you see in front of you. Therefore they may vary in size and shape.
For both the Fossil & The Silk vases and bowls we recommend using a bristled scrubbing brush with some water & depending on the stain some natural soap. Make sure you rinse well and leave in a warm place to dry. Do not use a towel or a cloth to dry as you will find that the fibers attach themselves to the outside.
