If you are in the market for a special gift (for yourself or someone else), consider supporting a local artist by purchasing some Lune Mer Porcelain pottery. These vases are super easy to arrange in and make any combination of flowers look effortlessly gorgeous.
The vases generally come in 3 different sizes – small, medium and large. They can be purchased at Surface Craft on John Street in downtown Charleston, SC.
The vases are uniquely oval shaped. Each has a different texture or pattern. Because they are handmade, no two vases are just the same.
What I love about these vases is that they make a single variety arrangement pop. You don’t need to buy a whole bunch of different flowers – 10 stems of some alstroemeria or daisies or carnations from your local grocery or farmers market will do! Just a few stems of white lisianthus in one of these vases make a beautiful composition…
Or go outside and clip off a few flowers and foliage growing in your backyard to create an arrangement.
A neat little trick with these vases is they can be used as luminaries when they are not holding flowers. Because they are porcelain, the light of a votive candle (or faux candle) will partially shine through the porcelain to show the unique pattern of each hand-crafted vase.
