Contemporary style, alluring texture, and classic craftsmanship! Sculpted in clay with the intricate addition of a myriad of raised droplets, the clay vase has an enchanting texture reminiscent of raindrops. The creation process begins with an initial firing in an electric kiln, followed by applications of a specially- crafted copper coating. The individual vase is buried in a primitive pit of sawdust that is ignited and allowed to burn for a period of hours. The smoldering fire results in one-of-a-kind color variations in the copper. Crafted by hand in Tennessee. Product care: clean with a duster or soft lint-free cloth, lightly dampened with windex or water. Never use abrasive materials or chemical cleaners. Although the vase has a protective finish, it is considered decorative and should not be used to hold water. A liner of glass or plastic may be inserted into the vase to hold water if desired.
