We're so excited to introduce our newest limited-edition Marais Vase collection! These pieces feature our handmade hardwood tops and new ceramic bottoms made in collaboration with artisans in Portugal.

In every MARAIS vase, the materials -- terracotta and hardwood -- combine to create an object that is both art sculpture and functional. Inspired by the natural beauty of the raw material, Abrantes designed each piece to speak for itself. We named the vases after inspiring women of our century.

Introducing our newest Marais Vases, named after these infamous women of the century: Celia, Angela, and Sylvia.
