  • the story

Drawn from Nature

This unique vase by Ricardo Saint-Clair is a blank slate, waiting for you to make your mark. A hole on the side of the vase holds a piece of chalk, which you can use on the erasable laminate surface to write reminders to yourself, illustrate what your flower might be thinking, or simply draw the vase you imagine.

A glass tube inserted into the top holds a flower, and is removable for easy cleaning. Vase can stand upright on a table, or be wall-mounted using the two included screws and anchors. Made in China.

        Comments about CHALKBOARD VASE:

        Super dissapointing product. I'm not sure why other reviewers like it so much, it's not really chalkboard so the chalk doesn't really write on it well at all. It's like, plastic almost. The styling is cute and I love the idea but what's the use of chalkboard vase you can't write on?! Was going to be a gift for my bridesmaids with a thank you note already written on the front but nope, back to square 1.

                I love the idea of this product and was excited to receive it for Valentine's Day. It is quite attractive and unique. However, the chalk barely shows when you write on the black surface. This is disappointing since the main draw of this product is the ability to write on it.

                  This will be sitting on a table when guests arrive for rehearsal dinner. I will have wedding color flowers in vase and write names of couple congratulating them.

                    My daughter's a teacher,with a busy life. This gift was for her and her husband to leave messages to each other. And my son-in-law to remember to bring her a flower.

                      LOVE this ... great for love notes and welcoming guests! The receptacle
                      for the flower does dry out quickly: be sure to add water daily.

                        Clever design. Bud vases add a nice simple organic value to areas and it draws your attention to the message left.

                            This is a great idea and fun to play around and change the flowers or chalkboard sayings. Have purchases several as gifts and the people just loved them. You can sit in on counter or hang it which is nice to have the option.
