Lately, it has been getting more and more difficult to find nageire containers. So we thought we'd get some made for us...right here in Nova Scotia, Canada...a place abounding with pottery talent!
We gave our minimum specifications from the ikebana point of view and left the artist to play with everything else! We asked that the vases be thick enough to withstand the crossbar fixture. (Yes, we had broken a few vases in the past because the vase walls had not been able to withstand the pressure!) We also asked for grooves on the inside for better traction.
We left the artist free to choose the type of clay, glaze and texture...with beautiful results! Here are the first 6 pieces. Each vase is hand-made. Each vase is one-of-a-kind. Proudly made in Nova Scotia, Canada.
