With These Rings

Some may say it’s “I do” that solidifies true love. We say it’s when your initials are carved into bark. Ceramicist Laurel Begley creates a fresh take on a romantic tradition with this keepsake vase. Laurel crafts an intricate faux bois texture inspired by the winding furrows in a tree's bark, shaping each “trunk” out of thick stoneware and adding a personalized heart with the couple’s initials. A thoughtful gift for a wedding, bridal shower, or anniversary party, it’s a piece that will remind them true love grows stronger with time. Handmade in Santa Rosa, California.

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

“I find inspiration in human interactions around an object. On one level, I'm making a vase that holds water and flowers. On the next, I'm doing my best to make it beautiful.”

Inspired by vintage knickknacks she inherited from her Nana and simple celebrations like family dinners, Laurel Begley hopes the vases she makes in her Sonoma County studio become part of a home’s narrative and an heirloom in its own right.

“I find inspiration in human interactions that take place around an object,” she says. “On one level, I’m making a vase that holds water and flowers. On the next, I’m doing my best to make it beautiful.”

    Comments about UncommonGoods Personalized Faux Bois Vase:

    Love, love, love this personalized vase! We received it as an engagement gift last year and we think of the gift-givers every time we use it. When not in use as a flower vase, it still looks great on a shelf.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Product was delivered safely and well packed.

        My wife really loved this vase and plans to use it throughout the year for her flowers. The only complaint that I had is that the vase is much smaller than I expected.

          I took it to the florist and they were more than happy to arrange in my vase. I honestly believe i got better flowers than others because they saw my request was special. They delivered in the heirloom vase to her work and it blew them all away.

                        The personalized vase is beautiful. It was bought as a wedding gift for a young couple, whom I know will love it. It seems well made and stronger than I was expecting. I wish I had one now.
