Pairing a candle
Alderney’s straight-sided, conical shape maximises the reflections of flickering candlelight. Use it to create atmosphere on a mantelpiece, console table or countertop. The small size works well with our Blyton 7x9cm candle, medium with our Blyton 10x10cm candle, and the large size with our Blyton 10x15cm candle.
As a vase
Alderney only needs three stems to create a modern display. Or fill it with a mass of the same thing like short-stem, hellebores for the small size, or hydrangeas for the large. With a flower-pot shape, it also looks good potted up with a household plant, or used as a terrarium for succulents.
As an ornament
Don’t worry about where you’ll store your vase when it’s not being used. Alderney looks just as good when it’s left empty. Put a pair in different sizes on the top of a sideboard, in a bookcase, or beneath a console table.
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 of our vases have heavy bases, so there’s no risk of large-headed stems.
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.
When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.
From our own, white-glove service for delivering larger pieces in the UK and Ireland, to our courier and international partners, rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to make sure your order gets to you on time and in one, perfect piece.
Delivery’s also entirely free if you’re in the UK and spend over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
Need to knows
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.
The joy of sitting in
Ways to rekindle the joy of an evening in, from the practical (choosing the perfect seat), to the fun (setting up a home cinema) to the emotive (why ‘hygge’ is still relevant).
