Hive Vase Large
The Hive Vase flaunts a solid base with a slightly off-axis opening that make sculptural floral arrangements easy. Designed by Shelley Simpson and inspired by Lee Mathews' signature cocoon-shaped sleeves and dresses, this vase is available in two sizes – medium and large. Available in limited colours.
All Mud Australia is handmade in our studio in Sydney, Australia. Slight irregularities in size, glaze and texture reflect the artisan nature of the product and should be embraced.
Metric (cm): 20 x 20 x 24.5

General information and care instructions
To maintain the appearance of your porcelain vase we advise that you wash in warm - not hot - water with mild detergent. Gently brush the glazed interior once flowers have been removed to ensure that any mineral residue is removed.
Please note: ink, orange, plum, red, slate, wasabi and yellow porcelain are our premium colours. These items are more complex to make and require more pigment for depth and vibrancy of colour, hence the premium pricing.

Handmade in our Sydney studio
With an elegant and timeless design aesthetic, Mud Australia thoughtfully creates porcelain homewares that are designed to last.
From our studio in Sydney we hand make every porcelain piece, actively building relationships with the people who buy and love our products across the world.
Carbon neutral since 2020, we’re passionate about social responsibility and believe in a sustainable future.
Using porcelain clay sourced directly from Limoges, France, the pigment is tinted to the body at slip stage to provide colour depth.
Clear glaze is applied to the interior of each piece leaving the exterior with a vitrified stone-like surface that becomes smooth with handling.
