More classic than Alderney and less formal than Newington, Kennington has a simplicity that suits all homes. You can use it with flowers or a candle – it looks great either way. The small Kennington vase is a neat size that fits almost anywhere. The medium size is actually very large. So it needs lots of space as a hurricane, and even more if you’re using it for flowers.
Design & engineering
As a hurricane lamp
When you’re not using Kennington as a vase, display it as a hurricane. Then it’s ready and waiting to create atmosphere at a moment’s notice. The small Kennington looks best with any of the Blyton 7x9cm candles, and the medium with 10x15cm Blyton candle.
As a vase
Kennington’s straight sides and broad ‘mouth’ mean you’ll need a generous bunch (so they support each other) or firmer stemmed flowers. The small size vase is perfect for flowers like short-stem roses. The medium Kennington vase is tall, so it works best with taller stems like lilies.
As an ornament
Don’t worry about where you’ll store your vase when it’s not being used. Kennington looks just as good when it’s left empty.
A clear glass vase reflects light in a room, in a similar way to a mirror. And with no colour, it will go with everything in the room. All our vases have heavy bases so there’s no risk of large-headed stems toppling them over.
The making process
This vase is hand blown, so no two are exactly alike. One might be a touch smaller than another; you might see a tiny air bubble trapped in the glass; or a swirl where it expanded as it was blown. It’s all part of the personality of something made by hand.
