Description:
The marbled swirl is a stunning take on a simple, classically-shaped vase. Its design is derived from mixing dark Kuro-Neri soil with a lighter Sheri-Neri soil which is then hand-spun and fired in a white-hot kiln, making each stoneware piece completely unique. A beautiful vase that can stand on its own or add fresh flowers to see their colors really pop.

Measurements:
4.25" H x 3.5" L 

History: 
The Gena Kuwan brand is a concept thought up by MISHIM designer Makiko Doi. Through her stoneware designs, she tells the story of a female sculptor named Gena Kuwan and her atelier who creates "vessels that resemble the work of a sculptor, with both strength and suppleness." To create Gena's pieces, Doi partners with Nankei Touen, a family-run ceramic shop Yokkaichi City whose products are all handmade by specialist Artisans. 
Materials:
Clay

Variation:
Each handmade vase is unique.

Care Instructions:
Clean with a soft sponge and mild soap. Dry immediately to prevent molding.
Microwave safe. Do not put in the oven.
