A Natural at Romance

When lovebirds carve their initials into the knotted bark of a tree, they create an everlasting record of a romance able to stand the test of time. Ceramicist Laurel Begley translates this ages-old tradition into a keepsake vase that captures a couple's ability to always find something fresh and beautiful to love about each other as they grow old together.

The vase exhibits an intricate faux bois texture that recalls the winding furrows in a tree's bark that make each natural giant one of a kind. She shapes each trunk-shaped vase out of thick stoneware and then, in its gray-glazed wood grain, she tucks a small heart that flutters with the single, first-name initials of each lover. A fresh interpretation of a cherished romantic tradition, the vase will fill your home will its natural beauty, and is also ideal to present a bouquet at a wedding, bridal shower, or anniversary party. Handmade in Santa Rosa, California.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

“I find inspiration in human interactions around an object. On one level, I'm making a vase that holds water and flowers. On the next, I'm doing my best to make it beautiful.”

Inspired by vintage knickknacks she inherited from her Nana and simple celebrations like family dinners, Laurel Begley hopes the vases she makes in her Sonoma County studio become part of a home’s narrative and an heirloom in its own right.

“I find inspiration in human interactions that take place around an object,” she says. “On one level, I’m making a vase that holds water and flowers. On the next, I’m doing my best to make it beautiful.”

                The personalized vase is beautiful. It was bought as a wedding gift for a young couple, whom I know will love it. It seems well made and stronger than I was expecting. I wish I had one now.
