retail is detail - sculptural vases

It's Friday, time for a bit of retail therapy... 

I'm a sucker for a beautiful piece of ceramic ware. I have all sorts of pots, vases, bowls, kitchen jars, planters and other objects. I've collected them from charity shops, car boot sales, high street stores, potters studios and as gifts. The thing about vases in particular, is that if you find an interesting shape, they look just as good on their own without any flowers in them. The other good thing is that they don't have to be expensive (especially if you buy second hand) and make a great way to accessorize your home. A large piece on its own makes a great focal point and a few smaller vases grouped together look interesting.

This is my round up of my current high street favourites, all with a strong sculptural shape:

Tall Whirl Vase £59 from Dwell

Bamboo Vase £19.50 from M&S

Vase 25.5 cms £40 from the V&A Shop
