Our Ceramicist Vases are some of our favorite new accessories from this spring season! Here’s a look at how they were developed from a couple of rough drawings in our Brooklyn office to a full collection of 8 finished pieces…
Our decorative accessories designer wanted to create a vase with the textured shapes of a traditional potter’s wheel piece. So she started to sketch. Soon the drawing board in our Brooklyn office was covered with different ideas.
The sketches were rendered on a computer so that the design team could have a better idea of what shapes were complementary, and how different vases might look together as a group. Then we went into the pottery studio to make some prototypes.
The design team explored different glazes, playing with depths and washes of color until deciding on a soft, textured glaze in a range of colors.
Casts were made from the original hand-thrown models, and these were sent out to become production molds — natural imperfections and all. The result is a crafted collection that is true to its material. We love how it all comes together!
