Dandelion Wine

What some may see as weeds, others see as beautiful bouquets. Handmade in Rhode Island by Jill Henrietta Davis, this bud vase was specially made to display the tiny wildflowers and dandelions picked by small, muddy hands and given with love. It's an ideal gift for mothers, grandmothers, or anyone else lucky enough to receive such special flowers.

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

Jill Henrietta Davis

In 1988, after experimenting with many different materials and art forms, artist Jill Henrietta Davis was first exposed to the wonders of molten glass and immediately fell under its spell. Sixteen years, a BFA and an MFA later, she remains as smitten as ever.

"Glass can do things that would be impossible with any other material, and although the learning process is quite difficult, once you gain a little fluency, blowing glass is just plain fun," Jill says. "I try to convey this fun by blending humor with fine craftsmanship in my designs." collection

Comments about MOM'S LITTLE VASE:

I bought this vase for my sister, sister in law, and one of my girlfriends, as they all recently had kids. They all absolutely loved the vase, and were really touched by the description explaining how the vase would hold flowers picked by their little ones. I have not seen them in person, but they have told me it is beautiful and perfect for a bright windowsill.

      Comments about MOM'S LITTLE VASE:

      This little vase is just that, little. Nobody read the dimensions, so we were expecting a much larger vase than the one that arrived. Certainly, the outer box led us to believe it was a normal-sized vase. That said, it is very cute. Just the right size for a single marigold come Mother's Day.

        Comments about MOM'S LITTLE VASE:

        I bought two of these. One for my Mother so that when her grandkids pick her flowers she has a special spot for them and one for my sister who is a new mother herself. They both had tears in their eyes. It was such a sweet and sentimental little gift. They are gorgeous! I was very impressed with the quality and apperance and such a perfect size for those floppy little dandelion heads my boys pick for me. I ordered one for myself as well!

          Beautiful vase, small but noticeable. The colored glass looks better in person than the picture, and I was pleasantly surprised as to the quality- sturdy, thick glass.

                    This product caught my eye because I've never seen one so small before. Perfect for dandelions or buttercups given in love from a child in spring! It will display those little gifts so beautifully and would be great for a mom, grandmother, day care worker, teacher, etc. I hope I get some little gifts like that this spring/summer so I can put them in this vase!

                    This is a tiny vase that is big enough to hold a flower bud, or dandelion; one a small child would give to you. Perfect for that one little flower. The colors are beautiful, remind me of a kaleidoscope. Love that is was handmade.
