Ceramic Floral Bud Vase
Each example of this Ceramic Floral Bud Vase is handcrafted by Philippine artisans and will be unlike any other. Formed from hand-thrown terra cotta clay each vase is hand painted with a cheerful floral pattern. Not food safe, but perfect for displaying plants and other decorative items. Felt pads on the bottom protect surfaces from scratching.
The phrase "terra cotta" is Italian (derived from Latin) and translates as "baked earth." The term is also often used to describe the brownish orange color typical of this kind of earthenware. Until the introduction of stoneware in the 14th century, terra cotta was the only known type of ceramic produced by Western and pre-Columbian peoples. The natural clay is formed by artists and then fired to temperatures approaching 2,000°F.
