A few stems of wildflowers, one or two foraged branches, small bunches of herbal sprigs: this handmade vase turns the simplest flower arrangement into a minimalist’s dream. Its organic, plump body is hand-glazed in beautiful milky shades of cream with the faintest trace of seafoam green dusted across the base. Subdued and calm, this quiet vase is at its most beautiful when holding the smallest sprig of flowers.
About Hanako Nakazato
As a 14th generation potter, ceramics is a family affair for Hanao Nazato. At age 16 she moved to the United States to pursue her education, where she took a renewed interest in her cultural roots, and returned home to learn pottery from her father. Her technique is grounded in the ceramic traditions of her home in Karatsu, and influenced by years traveling and living in the U.S. Nakazato currently splits her time between studios in Japan and Maine, U.S.
