The Life Instyle Product of the Week is.. *drum roll*… The Half Moon Vase from Stix & Flora. This product was hand selected by our event co-ordinator Danielle who could not go past the handmade, unique and trend setting design by the stylish duo, Em & Jules.
Our Half Moon Vase is an elegant trendy timber vase, available with one or two glass flasks that are simple to remove, wash and add fresh water. Stylish leather keepers hold the flasks in place and the sturdy leather hangers make the vase easy to hang. We recommend styling our half moon vases with a large display of flowers.
We had the vision of the shape of the vase in our minds, next all we needed to do was get the correct measurements of the timber and leather, it was actually quite easy as we had the previous experience of making our Teardrop Vases
Initially with our timber vases, we tried to lace all parts together and used elastic bands to hold our flasks in place. That didn’t work or look good either!
With Jules background of saddlery and leather work, she was quick to jump on the sewing machine and make a leather keeper, which actually held the flasks in place, and made it simple to remove the flasks also making the finished product classy. As for the lacing to hold the wood panels together, we soon realised nails would do a much neater and stronger finish.
Our next step was to see if anybody liked our vases so we attended our local market on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. The market commenced at 8am and by 10am we had sold out (#winning), we then knew we were heading in the right direction and had a lovely timber vase that people would be proud to hang in their homes.
All Stix & Flora products are handcrafted by us in our studio in Mt Eliza Victoria. We are super proud to be Australian Made and be able to support the Longest Table for cancer research charity.
