These simple and elegant ceramic vases will make your flowers look even more beautiful. Handmade from semi-porcelain the vases have a beautifully smooth unglazed matt exterior and a gloss glazed interior. Available in stone, indigo and dark grey the understated vases look sublime whether they are holding winter twigs, a single flower or a large bunch. As each vase is individually handmade there will be slight changes in each piece and slight colour variations, which is indicative of the material and the hand made processes. The Iris Vase is by Sue Pryke, a British homeware designer who started designing her own homeware and tableware products after having had a successful career which involved collaborations with the likes of Virgin Atlantic, John Lewis and Marks & Spencers.
Sue Pryke is a British homeware designer, who started her journey into ceramics at a small pottery in Lincolnshire. After graduation Sue's first job was at Wedgwood as a shape designer, guided by the design team she was taught to understand the breadth of ceramic form. Since then Sue has had a successful career which has involved collaborations with a wide range of clients, from Virgin Atlantic to High Street retailers such as John Lewis, Marks and Spencer's and prestigious manufacturers such as Wedgwood and Royal Doulton.
Sue is inspired by the everyday and the ordinary; material qualities, textures and the interaction we have with objects. Recently Sue wanted to create her own collection of objects that sit comfortably in the home, that aren't awkward, audacious or tricky to use or care for, but are familiar, have fluency and sit effortlessly. To bring this range together she collaborated with small factories and studios in England working with traditional craftsmanship, materials and techniques to make high quality products made by hand.
