A flower brick with removable lid, inspired by the 19th century "boughpots" design.
Measures approximately 18cm x 10cm x 20cm. Three design's to choose from.
It was customary in 18-19 century English homes to arrange flowers and branches in the hearth during the summer months when the fireplace was not in use. These arrangements were referred to as “bough pots.” They are now chatacterized for their oval shape to accommodate a narrow mantel, with fewer holes than a tulipiere or flower brick.
My shapes are inspired by historical Victorian 'chimney pots,' cathedral architecture and the principals of the Arts & Craft movement. I created my unique glaze recipe to resemble the frost-coloured lichen that grows on weathered limestone and granite buildings and headstones.
Handmade in Eastern Ontario. Wheel thrown, hand-built, altered and hand-carved.
Due to the nature of handmade, each piece varies slightly in shape, size and glaze colour. Food and dishwasher safe, read full care instructions here.
