Aren’t these ‘spool vases’ designed by Mara Skujeniece gorgeous?! Based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Mara designs furniture and interior products, specialising in ceramics. Central to Mara’s work which takes much of its inspiration from her Latvian origins, is the tactility of material, honesty in expression and a well thought-out process.


The series ‘Spool’ vases was inspired by the forms and structures of industrial yarn bobbins used in the weaving or knitting of fabrics. Varying in size, texture and structure, the family of vases is made of white porcelain. There are currently seven different models available. All vase are handmade in The Netherlands.
