Ceramic Celtic Vase - Ren Faire, Medieval Wall Pouch - Dusky Lavender
Does your wall need some old world renaissance bling? This handmade wall display pocket is sure to be a conversation piece or an unusual one of a kind Celtic themed gift that's ready to hang.
Made of earthenware clay, the vase is glazed with tones of lavender and touches of purple inside, with contrasting rusty dark oxide. The basic pouch was formed from a slab rolled piece which I coaxed into a soft bag shape. Next I used lace and different tools I've made, to imprint more designs and seal the seams and edges. The ornate patterns include little flowers, diamond shapes and Pagan sun wheels.
Completely glazed inside, the pocket is watertight, designed to be used as an actual wall vase and holds a bit more than 2/3's of a cup of water. It's almost 4" wide by 5 1/2" tall, not including the hanger (which is a natural leather thong.) The thong has a bronze color metal sliding tube bead that can be adjusted to make a shorter or taller loop. I put a small felt spacer pad on the back that also permits air circulation between the planter and the wall.
The props in the photo don't come with the item of course, but may give you some idea of how the rich patina and blended colors could set off a bouquet of flowers, fresh or dried. I enjoy making things that look like they came from an ancient temple or an old castle with interesting symbols.
Spice up a small area in your home. Have some fun creating a new sacred space!
First Item: $ 11.50
Additional Items: $ 9.00
Upon receipt of payment I'll ship USPS Priority on items 1# and up. Tracking and insurance will already be included. I'll contact you with your tracking number when your package is mailed so you will know when to expect it.
I pack carefully (35 years experience) and will use as much recycled material as possible. I'll send your order First Class, flat rate priority or regular priority. Heavy oversize items occasionally should go parcel. You should let me check as it can sometimes run $35 or more for these very heavy/oversize boxes to go as priority! But if it fits in a large flat rate, then of course it will be reasonable. $19 usually.
I'll refund your Paypal account whenever possible if your zone is closer to me than the one I use to estimate my shipping cost in the item listing. Flyers or descriptive stories I've written that pertain to your item will be included.
NOTE TO OVERSEAS BUYERS: Let me know if you would like me to look up the rates, rules and so on for international shipping. Generally speaking on the heavier packages (over 4lbs) it can get pretty expensive. I've shipped to the UK, Canada, Australia, Hawaii and Brazil so far.
Refunds and Exchanges:
Items can be returned or exchanged within 7 days at the buyer's expense. I'll refund the item's price but not the cost of shipping. Returned goods must be packed carefully and arrive in original condition. If there is a loss or damage due to shipping contact me and the USPS right away so you can file a claim at your end. (Save the packaging for them to inspect.) I've had very good luck during the 35 or so years of shipping I've done but hey, Meteors happen...
*Now about custom orders*
I work by inspiration and with the materials I have at hand, I'll welcome your input or wish-list and give you a heads-up if something is style, color or symbol-wise like something you've mentioned. Also, I always have many items bisqued, waiting to be fired but the glaze colors can still be chosen. So don't be shy about asking me a question or making a suggestion regarding what's possible to make. No obligation to buy :)
*Oh yes and last but not least*

Thank you so much, Teri! They are even more wonderful than the photos conveyed! I love them!! And thank you for the additional Goddess...she is beautiful!! Best wishes to you!
I love the look, the glazing and pattern. My new tillandsia, was loving provided by Teri. They both arrived quickly and super safe to their new home on the east coast. I adorn the tie on holder instead of glue. I have had other store bought holder that over glued the air plant and that was not good to them.
Thank you again!
Just Perfect!! Fast Shipping! Great Deal! Thanks so much!!
