Custom text Woodgrain vase, carved initials


This is the perfect anniversary gift- a vase mimicking a tree with your loved one’s initials carved into it. (More photos coming soon!) Accentuates winter arrangements looking beautiful with branches and greens, enhances the beauty of floral arrangements. Yes, you can actually feel the woodgrain texture. Handmade by Meredith in her Fern Street Pottery Studio. See my shop for more handmade originals! this woodgrain is featured in shot glasses/whisky sippers, flasks and lumberjack mugs. (If you don't see it listed, just ask as I may have it in stock.) No two are exactly alike, Lumberjack vases run approximately 7.5 inches tall, with an organic top edge.
Made one at a time, by hand, in the woods.

****IMPORTANT****Why does it take so long?****
This vase will not exist until you order it... at which point I will roll out the slab, carve and stamp in your text, and build the vase. The vase will then dry for at least a week, possibly two (pottery dries slowly in the northwest!) before I can fire it and fill the kiln. (one day to fire, plus one day to cool). then I glaze- not just your piece, but an entire kiln load of pottery- this takes a few days! Next I load the kiln and glazefire to about 2200 degrees (one day to fire, plus about 36 hours for the kiln to cool). When the kiln has cooled, I sand the bottom, pack and ship your vase! Whew!

**After you purchase, just message me through my website, or email me at meredith [!at] to let mw know what you would like carved into your mug.

*NOTE: less is better! one or two words will read the best. Let me know if you want them inside a carved heart or not (see picture above).

*4-6 weeks production time.Or non-customized Lumberjack mugs are available now.
This listing is made to order so there is production time. If you are looking for one that is ready, without customization I may have one in stock, please peruse my shop!


Items will be shipped promptly after payment is made.

Shipping from United States

Shipping is automatically calculated and added at checkout based on your zip code, the weight and size of the package. This costs you LESS than if I were to add "free" shipping as a blanket cost. Shipping is not one size fits all, and I make every effort to keep costs low. If I am able to combine multiple items into one package I will happily refund any shipping charges that are over-estimated.
Pottery will be shipped within 1-3 days (usually 1-2 days) via USPS. I choose Priority shipping as the cost includes up to $50 insurance (check with your carrier to be sure of current policy)
I use new boxes made from recycled materials. I wrap very carefully with clean, recycled air bubble bags for light weight shipping. Packages have a professional label presentation, with tissue inside, ready to be opened as a gift.
