Clean form, contemporary color, and classic craftsmanship! Measuring approximately 17″ tall, The tall bottle vase begins life as a clay form, fired in an electric kiln, followed by applications of specially-crafted copper coatings. The individual vase is then buried in a primitive pit of sawdust that is ignited and allowed to burn for a period of hours. The smoldering fire results in alluring color variations in the copper that cannot be duplicated – each is truly one of a kind! Handmade 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.
