Wall Vases –Flowers Optional

Keiichi Tanaka makes ceramic wall vases that are beautiful enough on their own, without flowers or plants to spruce it up. He says he is inspired by the old tools and handicrafts hanging on walls of old farmhouses. He wanted to make vases by hand that would look beautiful even without flowers and trees. He achieves the metallic look by applying a custom blended metal-infused glaze and firing the piece, then applying a black pigment and firing again. His pieces are actually quite affordable, the linear vase worth $310 and circular vase $280.
