This Cherry Blossom vase, by Leslie Green Guilbault of LGG Creative Art, was thrown on the potter’s wheel, and the details of each branch, leaf, and flower were hand-carved through the black underglaze to reveal the ivory-colored clay beneath (“scraffito” technique).
The exterior of the vase features a lovely matte finish, giving it a sophisticated, zen-like quality.
Use it as the centerpiece for your next holiday table, fill it with fresh or dried flowers, or feature it as an art piece in your home or office. The inside is fully glazed to allow for functional everyday use. The bottom is artist-signed and dated. And every piece is custom!
The vase featured is 10” high by 5” wide. If you prefer different dimensions, it’s easy to create a custom order on the artist’s website.
Price: $225, plus shipping
Shipping Information: Within the continental United States: $18.00 ; To Alaska and Hawaii: $24.00 ; Internationally: $32.00
