Okinawa Kiln Tiny Vases

Regular price $18 Unit price  per 

Description:
Ceramic bud vases handcrafted on the island of Okinawa, Japan. Glazed in earth tones and adorned in organic motifs inspired by nature, the uneven texture and asymmetrical construction add to their rustic charm. Please note that the vase you receive will vary slightly from the one depicted.

Measurements:
2.25'' D x 2.25'' H (size will vary slightly)

History: 
Okinawan pottery dates back to the 14th century with glaze patterns that represent the island’s lush tropical plant life. Okinawa is home to many distinct dialects and cultural customs that have survived despite pressure from the Japanese government to assimilate. With a unique language, diet, and ceramic tradition, many Okinawans still see their identity as separate from mainland Japan.

 

Materials:
Clay

Variation: 
Available in Brown (Flower, Wave or Sun) or Cream (Flower). Made entirely by hand, each Okinawan bud vase is unique. The bud vase you see in the photo may not be the exact piece you receive. You may see fine lines and cracks in the glaze, which are natural in this type of pottery.

Care Instructions:
Hand-wash recommended.
