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.

Brazilian designer Ricardo Saint-Claire expanded his work into product design after years of mastering art direction and graphic design. He earned a Masters of Arts in Communication Design in 2003 at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. Three years later, he launched his namesake design studio and made the leap into product design. Saint-Clair currently splits his time between designing for corporate clients and developing personal projects.

Not chalkboard!

By 

from seattle, wa

About Me Midrange Shopper

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.

    Comments about Chalkboard Vase:

    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.

          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.
