VIT ceramic vases are handmade in Seattle, USA
The first vases were the bud vases. Originally they were called "wedding bud vases" and were designed in response to a request from the bridal department of Barneys Japan. It is a Japanese tradition for the bride and groom to give their guests gifts.
These contemporary little bud vases, handmade and personal, are the result.
Each vase has a modern, organic form that was created using the ancient coil and pinch technique. I love forming these pieces using no other tools than my hands. The resulting vase is asymmetrical with a softly textured surface that catches and reflects light.
White stripe detailing is applied by hand onto bright colors or classic gray and taupe. This adds a little more texture to these contemporary pieces and ensures that each one is unique.
I glaze and fire all my ceramics by hand in my studio in Seattle. They are durable and easy to clean so that you can enjoy them for many years.
