Beautiful handmade wraparound vase in a rich cream background colour with the pattern picked out in pale blue and pale pink, with a dash of Crimson. The stitching detail is dark brown. It has a deliberately old, vintage feel to it, and the surface pattern has been rubbed with a darker glaze wash to add smudginess.
Measurements: 7cm diameter, 12cm at its highest point.
Can be used safely as pencil storage on your desk, or utensil holder in your kitchen.
If using as a fresh flower vase, it is advisable to insert the small glass (included with your order) and then fill with water. Whilst the inside is completely glazed, this will prolong the life of your piece.
It is made by hand and glazed by hand in my Norfolk studio, from earthenware clay. The wet clay piece is left to dry out for a few days, before firing for the first time. I then take it out of my kiln and glaze the piece before firing it again to finish.
This is a handmade piece and has a rustic, worn feel to it. It does not have the look and feel of a 'perfect' factory produced vase. It is so much nicer than that!

Sometimes my items are shipped by Royal Mail and sometimes by courier, depending on what is most appropriate for the individual parcel, and I do try to re-use boxes and packaging to cut down on waste.
In-stock items will usually be sent off within 2 days.
If they are not in-stock I'll gladly make them to order for you - please see individual shipping times or contact me for further advice. If you order more than one item and part of your order is made to order, I will ship all items together when ready.
I currently ship in UK and some smaller items overseas. For a shipment of a larger item outside the UK, please ask me for a shipping quote.

Very rarely, an item may break in transit - obviously a full refund or replacement will be arranged in that case.
