This was a big surprise for me from my daughter at Christmas. I had mentioned on facebook that these vases would make a wonderful Christmas present. My dear daughter saw that and ordered up a pair for me from Paula . Let me tell you how wonderful these are. they are heavy,made from repurposed pipes. They are nearly impossible to knock over so they make a wonderful addition to my work table where they hold brushes and pencils etc. I love how they look with a delicate flower in them. A contrast of delicate and substantial. She makes these in various sizes and colors from small votive to tall vases. A real joy!
