New Gaia Vase Makes Statement About Shape, Color

This past week the company announced the debut of its Batch #218 Tall Hand Glazed Vase, a slender piece that challenges modern, big-box pottery by employing a slender profile and a rustic color scheme.

In a world of mass-produced home goods, artisan company Gaia continues to stand out.

This past week the company announced the debut of its Batch #218 Tall Hand Glazed Vase, a slender piece that challenges modern, big-box pottery by employing a slender profile and a rustic color scheme.

Photos of the vase were revealed this week, and they do not disappoint.

Like nearly every piece in the Gaia collection, the vase tells a narrative of time, history and passion. The base of the vase boasts its raw, mocha-brown clay, but it quickly gives way to an aquatic turquoise color accented with a weathered texture.

Small idiosyncrasies in color and texture work their way up to the top of the vase, where the uncolored clay returns once again to cap the slender, cylindrical piece of art.

The vase sends its owner back to another place and time. It evokes images of an emerald French countryside where a modest cottage happily standing beneath thick, green leaves of shade trees. Moss covered eves give way to well-worn, wooden-framed windows, where, on a sill, the vase sits in perfect afternoon tranquility.

This is the power of a handcrafted piece, Gaia said, and is exactly why they believe homeowners will quickly realize the beauty of handmade pottery.

Like many pieces in the Gaia line, the Batch #218 vase is crafted from ceramic clay and was fired in a kiln at 2192 degrees, ensuring that the piece lasts long enough to become an heirloom.

The vase stands at 19.7 inches tall and 7 inches in diameter, a formidable yet refined piece for any room in the house.

“Each batch in this artisanal design process is individually created as an exquisite item that is never mass-produced,” the vase’s product description reads.

Close-up photos of the vase reveal an intricate pattern of cracks within the turquoise coloring, weaving a fascinating mosaic across most of the piece.

According to the Gaia website, Batch #218 is essentially a limited run of the vase. This not only increases the monetary value of the piece, but it also augments its potential as an heirloom piece to be passed down through generations.

When the company was first founded, Gaia’s leaders wanted to create unique pieces that included idiosyncrasies and quirks that shoppers wouldn’t find in mass-produced, cookie-cutter pottery pieces.

Each item in their line is molded, sand casted, ground and polished by hand.

It is this commitment to uncommon artistry that has led the company to release several new products over the past few weeks. Recently Gaia press releases have included announcements for a new pair of vases and a trio of hand-painted pots.

The Batch #218 Tall Hand Glazed Vase is available for purchase at $224 on the Gaia website, www.gaiacollection.com.
