One Bouquet, Five Ways
Gia & The Blooms partnered with Rookwood Pottery to experiment with the new Spring Collection!
Our friends at Gia & The Blooms know a thing or two about flowers, creating beautiful bouquets for weddings, installations all around the city, and of course Mother’s Day. We partnered with this local OTR flower shop for a little experiment to feature one bouquet dressed up in five different Rookwood Pottery vases from our new Spring Collection!
1. Clove Vase
Our sweet vase, known as our Clove Vase, is a little piece of Rookwood history. Originally created by artist Kataro Shirayamadani in 1928, this vase was named for and inspired by the shape of a clove of garlic. The soft, billowed edges delicately show off the glaze variations in this watercolor-inspired treatment and showcase your Spring greenery.
2. Teardrop Vase
Our classic Teardrop Vase is inspired by a 1930’s Rookwood pitcher created by artist John D. Wareham. This timeless design meets a modern finish, presenting an elegantly daring look to hold a dozen of your favorite blooms.
3. Flora Bud Vase
Our Flora Bud Vase is one of the newest pieces from our growing collection of vases. Made by Rookwood artist, Morgan Willenbrink, this delicate vessel is carved to have the appearance of petals cascading down each side. The narrow spout is made to display fluttering bundles of blooms and is topped off in a sunshine-inspired glaze.
4. Rienerth Vase & Cooler
Our Rienerth Vase & Cooler, made by Rookwood artist and mold-maker, Jessie Rienerth, doubles as a vase and wine cooler (if you didn’t guess that from the name!) Simply fill with a handful of flowers or pair with your favorite bottle of vino and you’re set.
5. Gypsy Vase
Our Gypsy Vase was designed by Rookwood artist and mold-maker, Zach Sabatelli. This tall and slender form has a unique geometric design, crafted for displaying stately centerpieces on any table and thoughtfully designed to double as a pitcher for entertaining.
