Nicole Aquillano Porcelain Simple Line Tall Vase - 6.5"

Availability: In stock (2)
Perfectly weighted and subtly fluted, this simple porcelain vase is a go-to favorite. Makes a humble bunch of just-gathered Queen Anne's Lace and Black Eyed Susans look like a big deal and makes real-deal beauties (like peonies or parrot tulips) look like something out of Vermeer.

About the line: These exquisite, pared-down porcelain pieces from Boston-based ceramicist Nicole Aquillano remind us of scrimshaw, and with good reason: like a storm-tossed sailor carving the dreams of her journey into ivory, Nicole etches the subtle embellishments on each piece of porcelain by hand, fills them with rich, inky, custom-blended pigment—it reads a deep indigo blue in some lights, and black in others—applies a signature hand-mixed glaze, and fires them twice. The luminous bone palette of the slipcast porcelain is simply the natural color of the hand-mixed clay itself and the double high-heat firing means that these pieces are (truly) as sturdy as they are stunning. We think we've found our new everyday dishes.

Take Care: Who said porcelain was fussy? These diamond-hard pieces are good to go in the microwave, fridge, or dishwasher.
