Ceramic Vases NZ

Discover a growing range of ceramic vases. Each week Sam crafts a small selection of new vases, generally 5 of each design at a time. Once out of stock it can be some time before they are re-made as each vase is handcrafted on the pottery wheel.

At Sam Mayell Ceramics I utilise a range of different stonewares from New Zealand and overseas. Most vases are thrown in buff, cream, speckled and white clays from NZ. Each piece is completely unique and one of a kind.

I love exploring different shapes and ideas, sometimes I enjoy crafting more clean minimal vases, while other times I get a little whacky and go ful crazy with colour. The ceramic vases are all glazed inside so will hold water and fresh florals or dried stems.

Pricing varies based on size, shape, clay and glazes used in the creation of each ceramic vase, I try and stay competitive with other NZ brands but being a handcrafted product sometimes prices can be a little higher.

Discover a constantly expanding range of ceramic vases. I take pride in offering a curated selection that is continually refreshed with new designs and creations. Each week I craft a small batch of vases, typically producing five of each design at a time. Due to the handcrafted nature of our vases, once a particular design sells out, it may take some time before it is re-made, adding an element of exclusivity to each piece.

At Sam Mayell Ceramics, I embrace the versatility of different stonewares sourced from both New Zealand and overseas. The vases are predominantly thrown using buff, cream, speckled, and white clays sourced locally. These clays lend a unique character to each vase, resulting in a truly one-of-a-kind piece. I'm constantly exploring various shapes and ideas, allowing for a diverse range of vases in our collection. From clean and minimalistic designs to bold and vibrant creations that transform spaces with bursts of colour, the selection caters to a wide range of tastes and preferences.

All our ceramic vases are carefully glazed on the inside, making them suitable for holding water and displaying fresh florals or dried stems. Whether you wish to showcase a vibrant bouquet or create a more neutral statement with dried flowers, the ceramic vases provide the perfect canvas to elevate your floral arrangements.

When it comes to pricing, I work hard to maintain competitiveness with other New Zealand brands while considering the handcrafted workmanship in the creation of each vase. The size, shape, clay type, and glazes used all contribute to the pricing variations. As a result, while we aim to offer our handcrafted vases at reasonable prices, it's important to note that the exclusivity and artistry involved in their production may occasionally result in slightly higher prices compared to mass-produced alternatives.

Experience the artistry, individuality, and functionality of our ceramic vases. Each piece tells a story and adds a touch of sophistication to any space. Whether you're seeking a statement piece or a subtle accent, our ever-changing collection of handcrafted ceramic vases is sure to captivate your imagination and become cherished heirlooms for generations to come.
