A beautiful vase with lid handmade by Akihiro Nikaido at his studio in Mashiko, Japan. As part of his 'Mist' collection this vase features a unique glaze that's quite wispy, moving from grey to white in a circular motion, but textured when felt in the hand. They are white glazed and then baked at a high temperature in the kiln so it's fused with the soil and doesn't melt away.

Alongside the functional and handmade element, this vase has a beautiful thin form and take cues from nature itself. Nikaido’s known for his interest in the tea ceremony as an art, often creating works that would work well or coincide with a tea room, and this object is no different. It's truly something special.

Please note: All of these feature small marks and details that can't be picked up by the camera, the colour may also differ slightly.
