This fun flower vase has a conical shape, with an oval base and two small handles which gives it a special character. Its narrow top allows it to hold a small bunch of flowers or a single stem will also enhance the beauty of this slow crafted piece.
The surface design is inspired in simple patterns that I see in wallpapers, illustrations and fabrics. This one has a simple and timeless dot design and carved base.
It was made using a slab building technique with a natural colour clay body stoneware.
As my pieces are 100 % handmade. They may show beautiful imperfections that only a handmade product can achieve. I enjoy the slab building process and create pieces following the Japanese philosophy Wabi -sabi. The characteristic of the Wabi-sabi include asymmetry, simplicity and sometimes roughness depending on the claybody I use. There is a natural appreciation of natural objects and processes.
