Part of the Herringbone collection, the series is inspired by the process and transformations that occur when various materials and shapes are dipped in baths of dye. Resulting in a unique design, the Herringbone Vase's tactile, ribbed surface is brought to life with a vivid splash of colour, dipped by hand to achieve the unique, irregular colour gradient. Beautifully enhancing your favourite flower and plant arrangements, the contemporary vase is ideal for positioning in the centre of a dining table or on a windowsill.
