Short Vase


*Prices are per one item.
A simple cylindrical short flower vase. It is made of white and sky blue porcelain, kneaded and thrown on a potter's wheel in a Neriage technique, and finished in a modern and beautiful unglazed finish with a random marble pattern.

It can be used in a variety of ways, as a dried flower vase, holder for keys, accessories, and other small objects when placed in an entryway, as a table centerpiece to hold napkins, as a candle case, or as a home decoration piece on a shelf or mantelpiece.

This piece was featured in the June 2021 issue of VogueUK.

H = 2.75, Dia 3.5 inches
Weight = 8 - 8.5 oz

Please understand that the size and weight of each piece may slightly vary because it is made by hand-thrown on the potter’s wheel.

Saori M Stoneware is a studio pottery shop. All items in this shop are handmade by me and are made in my garden studio in a suburb of Seattle, Washington, U.S. I apply a technique called marbling, in which several colors of clay are sandwiched together on a potter’s wheel to create a marbled pattern. I use pigments such as mason stains and several shades of clay or combine clay of different properties to create my pieces.

Since all pieces are 100% handmade, the shapes, colors, and patterns may differ slightly from those shown in the pictures, and we appreciate your understanding.

My name is Saori Matsushita. While studying contemporary sculpture as a student, I encountered ceramics, which is more closely related to our daily lives, and I aimed to fuse art with these practical potteries. My joy in creating art is to bring fun and aesthetic sensibility into our daily lives and to meet people through my work.

I just started this Etsy store in 2021, and I try to use environmentally friendly and recycled materials for packaging and to ship carefully and promptly. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at any time.

    Care instructions

    Those almost works are unglazed finish, but they are fired at a high temperature to tighten the base, so beverages such as coffee and tea do not stain. However, red wine can soak into the white base and may stain it. For more information on how to prevent and remove stains, please check the special booklet included with the order of white-colored pieces.
