Blue ribbons in clear glass remind us of bright summer skies even when there's only clouds outside.
'Temari' is a traditional handmade toy ball made using colourful threads, silk ribbons and satin cord to create gorgeous geometric designs. The intricate work that goes into creating the beautiful patterns is why they are seen as much valued and treasured gifts.
These little round vases convey the spirit of the temari balls they are named for. In their bright colours and cheerful patterns they send the recipient vitality and good health, joy and friendship.
These small glass vases are handmade by craftsmen in Japan. They may look delicate but they have a good solid feel to them, almost like a paperweight, giving them enough weight to carry a bit of height without seeming like it will tip over.
Ideal for mini ikebana, small arrangements and single stems, this colourful glass vase will make an attractive table decoration, fit perfectly on a mantle piece or give a lift to your work space.
Since each vase is made by hand, the pattern may vary from the images shown.
Made in Japan.
