- the story
Brown Bag It
No, those aren't real paper bags, but they do bear a rather canny resemblance--in fact, some would call it uncanny. Handmade in Canada, these vases are designed by Michel Harvey to look remarkably like real paper bags, though unlike their likenesses, they're ceramic and perfect for flowers. Go ahead and water them all you want - these accents can handle any liquid refreshment. Handmade in Canada.
As featured in O, The Oprah Magazine

- the maker
Creator of the whimsical ceramic kraft paper bag and glove vases, Michel Harvey compares his work to that of a magician. "Nothing in his hand, nothing up his sleeves."
Raised in Quebec City, he studied design at the University of Quebec and Ceramics at Cegep of Montreal, and he now lives in Montreal.
His technique, like a magic wand, transforms common, anonymous, everyday objects info art forms that surprise, intrigue and amuse.
His main objective is to create a work of quality which is also pleasant to own, but which is able to do more - his handcrafted porcelain vases can hold water, plants and flowers.
If he were not an artist, he says he'd be a magician - "probably as good as David Copperfield."
