Individually designed, hand-turned, and some even hand-carved by our own Donovan Fiaretti...these one-of-a-kind hardwood vases are a beautiful addition to any home.
Each vase is made by hand, intentionally for our Make It Slow community to have and hold for a lifetime. Because of their handmade nature, they do require some care which should be considered below.
This particular miniature vase (Batch 1, Vase 03) is made of spalted maple hardwood. The grain has a beautiful marbled look to it with black lining design.
Spalted maple is a work of nature’s art that happens when fungus invades maple creating a vein pattern. There is no other pattern like it in nature.
This piece is approximately 5 inches tall.
*This vase has a small portion of it that is hollowed where insects ate into the wood - creating a tunnel design. We find this unique characteristic to be beautiful and so we don't try to hide it, but rather embrace the organic beauty of it. You can reference this detail in the product photos.
- Not watertight - please do not use these for fresh flowers with water. These vases are meant for holding dried botanicals.
- They are sealed with a beeswax + linseed oil finish. Please re-oil every 6 months to maintain the beautiful sheen that they arrive with. We recommend oiling with a similar oil, coconut oil, or cutting board oil.
- Please do not use olive oil, canola oil, vegetable oil, or sunflower oils, as these can go rancid.
