Objects of Desire: Wet Vessels by Aviva Rowley

May 9, 2018

New York City–based ceramist (and florist) Aviva Rowley creates Wet Vessels: vases, planters, and pots with moody, gunmetal glazes. But be warned: Each piece is one of a kind, so when it’s sold, it’s gone.

Read on to see some of our favorites … and a peek at a new collection Rowley is working on with LA-based florist (and Gardenista contributor) Sophia Moreno-Bunge.

A Baby Bud vase made of dark brown clay has a matte black glaze and measures 3.5 inches tall and \1.5 inches in diameter; \$60.

Florist Rowley got her start in the business as an intern to Manhattan florist and garden designer Emily Thompson: “Emily Thompson … is an amazing artist and sculptor turned florist—so there was never much separation between sculpture and flower arranging,” Rowley recently told Freunden von Freunden. “For me, they are just different materials. I didn’t know jack about flowers when I started working for her.”

At six inches tall, a Barbell Vessel has a diameter of \2.5 inches; \$\150.

Coming soon is a collection of ceramic bricks with holes to hold single stems, a collaboration with florist Sophia Moreno-Bunge. &#8\2\20;How perfect they are for rooting!&#8\2\2\1; says Rowley.
