This vase was part of the Present exhibition of Kunstliefde in my hometown Utrecht, The Netherlands.

From large to small, all of our ceramic pieces are 100% handmade. After building them by hand or throwing them on the pottery wheel, they are sculpted and painted with lots of care, giving each of them their own unique character.
This piece is part of the Golden Dots Collection
Ceramics from the Golden Dots Collection are painted with luster details when they are finished, and then fired for a third time. The high temperatures in the kiln burn the luster and leave a bright, 24-carat gold layer on top of the glaze
Important Note about Bud Vases
The bud vases have long, quirky postures which gives them character but also makes them fragile! It is recommended to place the vase at a spot that is wind-free and has a low risk of being pushed over.
