Loves: Dutch Vases

I’m becoming such a domestic queen. For days now I have done research on vases. Once I start, I can’t stop. I seem to find more and more beautiful vases. And more and more, they are becoming objets (pronounced super French & gay) to me.

Caution: I rarely get a sticker shock but please look closely before you send me one of those vases as a prezzie. Don’t say I haven’t warned you.

All three vases below are designed by Marcel Wanders for Moooi. He’s also art director and co-founder of the company. Mr. Wanders was one of the first designers for droog.

Egg Vases: Ordered.

Ok, this one is a no brainer. Bunched up eggs as a vase. So good. Apparently, the design process involved stuffing latex rubber condoms with hard-boiled eggs to come up with the shapes. A little nasty stuffing always sounds good to me.

There are 3 sizes available, small, medium, large. I like the medium best, it’s the one where the eggs reach up to the top. I have already ordered mine. Seriously.

The egg vases also come in limited editions in chrome or gold. However, I love the white ones.

Golden Eggs: Still on the want list

Blue blobs: Is it really a vase?

The two vases above are from the Marcel Wanders Delft Blue collection. These two objets are my favourites, but you can surprise me with any MW Delft Blue item. Here, the golden eggs are wonderful. And the blue blobs on the last vase? Stunning. Who needs to put flowers in the vase anyways?

The two vases are produced and decorated at Royal Delft, a Dutch company dating back to 1653 and the original producers of the exquisite Delft Blue ceramics. The vases are reinterpreting and revitalizing Delft Blue and the old Dutch craft using new ideas for shapes and decoration.
