Porcelain Bud Vases

These porcelain beauties are made by local Toronto ceramicist Kristin Sjaarda
Working primarily in porcelain clay with a food safe, gloss white glaze, with or without blue accents, Kristin's ceramics are a modern take on a ceramic tradition. she has also included a few rare, one-off pieces in black clay with white, food safe glaze.

The vases, cups and bowls in this collection are a joy to use and very practical as they are safe for the dishwasher. Each piece is hand thrown, hand painted and hand glazed. Kristin's aim is pottery that feels good to use as well as to look at. 

The vases, incorporating details like fluting, pedestals and curlicue handles, are sculptural enough to be stand-alone pieces while also looking great in a group. They are available in a range of sizes and are designed to hold different stem lengths and flower types - Kristin is also a floral photographer, and likes to bunch the vases in settings of 3 or 5 for an exciting, varied display.
