Valentine Vessel

13 × 8 × 4

Available for Pre-Order. Please allow 4 weeks for your order to ship.

The Valentine Vessel is our ode to one of our biggest inspirations -- the ceramicist, set designer, and interior architect Valentine Schlegel. The three pronged necks allow for a variety of sizes of stems -- VS would have filled with dramatic tulips or lilies -- but we also love this piece standing on it’s own.

Materials: Cast white stoneware, black underglaze, slightly textured matte black glaze. Olive oil to finish.

*please note that a small mark may show on the tip of the Valentine where we place a stilt to support the top of the vessel from sinking during firing.
