Hello! Welcome to The Slate Vase (previously known as Slate Ikebana Vases) with a new online shop and ongoing inspiration for your vase use. #morenature
I'm Mary and I design and hand-make these unique natural vases and products from my home studio, in beautiful Noosa on Queensland's Sunshine Coast.

I very proudly present to you this Japanese vase concept (utilizing an 'Ikebana' style shallow water reservoir and 'Kenzan' spikes) to enable beautiful, natural arrangements. Combined here with an original stone feature called The Slate Vase. This product has been improved over the many years of working with the gorgeous, organic, tactile medium of SLATE STONE... and now I am finally able to offer online access for all my customers Australia-wide and beyond.
This wonderful vase concept is designed to encourage the easy inclusion of nature in your world. Each piece of raw stone is carefully handpicked for quality and strength, and the resulting item is crafted with love and care. The Slate Vase displays stems with ease - allowing longer lasting cut flowers / greenery for your extended enjoyment.
Simple, effective and elegant… nature displaying nature.
I hope you love my functional, artisan products as much as I love creating each piece.
