A vase is a home away from home for flowers and has the unenviable task of hosting objects that are very consistent and diverse in their beauty. Despite the level of competition they have faced for splendor, I think vases have managed to hold there own in this battle. Ceramic artisans throughout the ages have given them a dignity with their original designs.. For vases, a single colour will suffice for most of the time. It’s all too easy for them to clash with the rich array of colour that flowers tend to project. But for the more monochrome flower displays, the vase gets the chance to strut its stuff. Of all the ceramic ware, vases carry the most decorative responsibilities and have always been a favorite with collectors. They also have the most scope for displaying more shape then the other ceramic forms.They have been style beacons for many different era’s such as Art Deco and Art Nouveau, but unfortunately of late they have been a little deprived of a definitive style. As long as there is flowers, there will be a place for vases and they will always be welcome on my mantlepiece.
