Stem Dwellings


Stem Dwellings - stone vases for little cuttings

Or home for twigs, buds, blooms, posies, stalks – they also look rather well holding a feather or two.

The trees are bursting with catkins and buds at the moment and tiny, delicate petals are emerging through the soil – I love to bring indoors some of these first signs of spring.

I’ve carved these vases (stem dwellings – I think they look rather like little round houses) in sandstone, which has joyful waves of rich, natural colour – so expressive!  Each of the little vases has a glass vial insert for water, to keep those cuttings fresh and cared for.

Stem Dwellings – stone vases for small cuttings, buds and stalks will be featured on my stand at the Gardens Illustrated Festival at the end of March.

      Thankou so much Caroline – the catkins are a glory here and my hedgerow is beginning to show green tips – and sunshine today too – all so envigorating!

      Not sure how sensible such small pots are as they only hold tiny plantings – but as you say they’re sweet and sweet, small plants urge me to make them.
