Thrown on the pottery wheel, each vase is unique. Angled edges and classic mid century shapes are a theme in this series.

Thrown in Brutalist clay and glazed in kirikiri, a subtle but rustic glaze which picks up the natural elements of the clay, these vase have interesting glossy elements and glaze crystallisation which is celebrated in ceramics. Kirikiri means sand or shoreline in te reo māori.
Tumu means foundation, stump, base, dependable leader and is the name of the main post of a Pā in te reo māori. The weight and structure of the vase speaks to its strong foundation.
These vases are perfect for blooms, dried flowers, as they are or in a collection.
