Celebrating Love

We all know there are traditional gifts for each anniversary, from paper to gold, but the gift that means the most is your love and well wishes. That’s why this personalized piece from David Vorhees is sure to make such an impression at an anniversary celebration. Handmade from porcelain, this decorative vase has a top opening just large enough for guests to slip in up to 150 handwritten notes of congratulations and affection.

The vase then becomes a one-of-a-kind time capsule, to be saved for another milestone celebration, or even just later that night. The base of the vase has been perforated, so that with the tap of a wooden spoon the saved messages come spilling out, allowing the vase to continue its use as a romantic decorative accent. The elegant piece is wheel-formed and then hand-decorated with flowers. The precise, custom lettering is created by glazing a ceramic decal in your choice of typeface. Handmade in Zirconia, North Carolina.

Both of David's parents were professional painters, so it was natural for him to follow in their footsteps pursuing art making as a life. Once he touched clay he had found his medium! Primarily self-taught, he has focused for many years on working with porcelain, under glaze painting his wheel-formed items with subtle floral decorations then high firing them to a luminous state. Years of pottery making, learning his craft, and traveling to art shows along the Eastern Seaboard led to opening his own store in Flat Rock, NC with his jeweler wife, Molly Sharp. After 40 years, he continues to be amazed at the enjoyment found in the making and sharing of this beautiful art form.
