Bloom Where You're Slanted

Get swept up in the natural beauty of your next bouquet with this sculptural vase. Inspired by the shape of antique fans, it is crafted from a series of cherry wood blocks arranged at sequential angles. Fitted into each block is a glass test tube large enough to hold a single flower, creating a dynamic sweep of color. The test tubes are watertight, so your blooms stay fresh longer, and are removable for easy cleaning. Handmade in Georgetown, Texas.

Leslie Webb

Leslie Webb discovered her love of building while working as a nanny. She began working in the father's painting studio a few hours a week, building shipping crates. She was hooked the very first time she cut a piece of wood. Her passion led her to the renowned Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine, where she completed the inaugural 9 month Comprehensive Program. She then continued her design education in the Crafts and Design program at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. Leslie has participated in many prestigious shows, including ICFF, the Architectural Digest Home Design Show, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show. Leslie loves the challenge of balancing the aesthetic and utilitarian aspects of each piece she designs. She believes that form and function are equally important, that they must act together to create a whole. her designs often employ the use of pattern and repetition, building works whose totals are greater than the sum of their parts.

Comments about SHOSH BUD VASE:

I bought this as my 5 year anniversary gift for my wife as traditionally wood is given for 5 years. Though this is not a gift to give a woman you have been married to for 5 years. I thought this would be a great center piece to look at for the years to come with a story to go with it as an anniversary gift would. It came in a big box.... To a smaller box.... To a real small.... Needless to say this vase (if you can call it a vase) is not worthy of a woman's respect. The moment she opened the box I knew I made a mistake... Though she didn't laugh I know she was on the inside, so I did what any husband would do... I laughed for her. If your looking for some for your daughter room or some to set up in your grandma eat in kitchen this could work. Otherwise gentlemen stay away from this for your wife!

    We're big fans of unique vases, so this fan-shaped cherry wood design really grabbed our attention! How would you display this handmade piece?

    Besides the fact that it is made in my home state of Texas, the geometry of this is soft, smooth and peaceful. You can change it's looks with different flowers. It can appeal to several different audiences as well.

    Very unique, and one could see how beautiful it could be after an afternoon of picking wildflowers. It's make a colorful and fresh centerpiece. I'm not sure how much I personally would use it, but I know many people who would find this extremely appealing.

    I like that you can really stretch a bouquet this way, but I don't like the idea of filling each little tube with water and trying to keep it out of the wooden holes so they don't swell. Also, just a little too modern for my taste.

    I'm not a fan of how these vases only hold one flower each. Also the opening for the flower seems very narrow and unlikely to fit stems that are a little more robust.

    I hate to vote against anything, because it may be great for someone younger than me. It is a cute idea. I would not buy it, but I just know others would because it is unique, uncommon and isn't that what your company is all about.

    It's unclear how this stays upright. Somehow, doesn't display the flowers--unless picked dandelions by a grandchild--to their best advantage

    This is a artistic unique design. It looks like a smaller version of a sculpture you would see on the outside of a museum. Can't really see how it hangs though. I am assuming it hangs and not stands

    Really neat piece! I'm wondering how steady it would be? Is it heavy enough to not get knocked over with the slightest touch?

    Love it! But do you hang it? Does it stand up on it's own?

    alena
    Vote: Thumbs down!

    I does not look very sturdy but more importantly it would have a large off balance of elements, the wood overly outweighs the 9 individual flowers that it is able to hold. Maybe if it were able to hold more flowers it would have a better balance.

    too many vases for his type of items. I'd prefer it if there were only 3 or 4, though that migt compromise the design of it.
