If you’ve been looking for a show-stopping vase for when a plain old glass number just won’t cut it – this is it. The Large Tribute Vessel by New Zealand brand Formantics is a study in silhouette and symmetry, created in loving ode to painter Frances Hodgkins. Hand-crafted from terracotta-colored raw clay, the vessel combines straight lines forming a triangular base and lip with two fluid, curving arches in the body. Fully waterproof with a glazed interior, just add a bunch of flowers and a splash of water. A modern classic. Formantics is an art and ceramics brand based in New Zealand. Founder Susan Christie launched the business in 2016 after previously working in the navy, as a psychologist, as a business consultant – all while studying and raising children. Since graduating with her fine arts degree in 2015, Christie realized her passion for creating pieces that play with color, shape, and form. Each Formantics product is handmade in New Zealand by Christie from the highest quality local materials and serves as a vibrant and unforgettable ode to the joys of life. Sold individually. Each piece is handmade and therefore unique. Vase measures 24cm in height, 11cm in width and 5cm in depth. Raw clay exterior with a glazed interior. Fully waterproof.
