Thursfield Medium Vase - Flax Blue

A closer look at Thursfield

Thursfield’s a vase for adding texture to your interior. With its mix of crackle-glaze, hand-stamped wildflower motifs in palest blue, and exposed clay, it feels soft, pretty and contemporary. It’s watertight, so you can fill it with real or life-like flowers, but it’s decorative enough to look attractive when empty.

The material

Earthenware is a type of clay that’s fired at lower temperatures (as opposed to stoneware or porcelain, which need more heat to harden properly). Because of that, it’s more porous. But, so you can fill it with water for fresh flowers, we’ve glazed Thursfield to make it watertight. Earthenware’s also usually a little rougher in texture than other clays – perfect for Thursfield’s exposed, tactile top.

The finish

The crackle finish on Thursfield is created using two layers of glaze. Because one dries quicker than the other, hairline cracks appear in the surface, giving it the feel of a much older piece and more layers of texture and interest.

Creating the vase


The wildflower decoration is hand-stamped onto the clay, and gives it texture as well as colour and pattern because this technique creates indentations. Colour variations and an irregular look to the pattern are all part of the fact that it’s done by hand, so no two pieces will look the same.

Arrangement suggestions

If you want to fill Thursfield rather than leaving it empty, then white and blue flowers work best. Try a full bunch of tulips in this medium-sized vase – the slim neck will hold them in so they gently spill over the edges. Or else, use just greenery on its own. Silvery olive stems will complement the blue pattern.

Just so you know

Our larger vases are heavy. Half-full of water, even heavier. So we recommend arranging your flowers in situ rather than trying to carry the vase when it’s full.
