Adorable bud vases bring spring in all year. They are perfect for a single bloom or a tiny handful of flowers. Give one as a sweet hostess gift or keep for a simple gift of joy set by a bed, to dress up the bathroom or tucked anywhere in your home for a burst of happy. Each one is unique. I hand make each start by rolling out clay and imprinting it with stamps that I fashioned; blooms, bee, dragonfly, leaves or vines. Next I roll it into a cyclinder and mend the seam. I trim the top in various ways or add a bird. Every vase is dried and bisqued in the kiln. The final steps are hand painting the intricate details in colorful underglazes. The bee is made up of 5 colors alone. I add a colorful glaze to the interior and clear coat the exterior to seal the fired clay in what is in effect a thin layer of glass. Add water and a tiny bouquet and poof! Instant small pleasure- and we need those these days.
bud vases are a small burst of happy
I like to have a little something to give when we visit a dear friend or family. Bud vases are just right- not too much or too little- and they will be treasured. You will get two with your order- one with a wavey top and one with a little bird; so you may keep one for yourself :)!
