25 Handmade Vases for Spring Flowers

by Grace Bonney

It’s that time of year when flowers start peeking out of the ground, trees begin to bloom, and we finally get to enjoy some of that plant life inside. I’m a big fan of making floral arrangements with whatever you have around you (branches, dried flowers, fruit, etc.), but I think one way to make just about anything feel special is to know the story of the person or craft behind your favorite flower vase.

Ceramics have always been my softest spot in design (the thing I can never resist), and my small collection of handmade vases makes even the simplest and most humble arrangement feel important. So today I’m sharing 25 of my favorite handmade vases from independent makers around the world that will elevate everyday flowers and give you a chance to learn more about the person, studio, and tradition behind the object. Happy arranging! xo, Grace
