Can't Get Enough of Your Glove Vase

As the cliche goes, a glove is a many-splendored thing, and one of the many splendors of this glove is that it's highly skilled at holding flowers. Hold on, that's not the saying. At any rate, this ceramic glove is great as a planter and fantastic as a vase. And unlike some of your other gardening gloves, this one is waterproof and a fabulous accent for your home on a windowsill, on a porch, or anywhere else you can think of. Designed by Michel Harvey. Handmade in Canada.

Artist card included.

Michel Harvey

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."

      I bought this for someone who is very difficult to buy for. She loves gardening, so I thought this would be a cute, unexpected gift. Although the vase is very small, the quality is terrific. It looks much more expensive than it actually is.

        Comments about PORCELAIN GLOVE VASE:

        This was the perfect gift for a coworker considering we work for a glove manufacturer! Everyone who walked by her desk just went on and on about the little glove vase. I was very impressed with the quality. And the florist who did the arrangement loved the fact that the inside of the vase was treated so the water wasn't absorbed like in terra-cota. This is a hit, for sure!

          Item ended up being much smaller than I expected. Even though the dimensions are listed its still hard to tell or expect what it will end up looking like. Although it does look exactly like the picture its just a bit small.

                i bought this as a gift for a garden-minded family member and couldn't be happier!! Not only do they love it, i love it too! And it's such a great conversation piece for everyone who sees it! Plus, where I live the summers are great but the winters are cold and snowy. This guy can be moved inside and "keeps the garden-feel" going all year long. GREAT PRODUCT!!

                  This was a gift for my step-mom who is an incredible decorator and I knew she would find it fun and different. I was right, she was amazed at how real it looked and I can't wait to see how she uses it!
