Benedictine Beauty

English Prinknash Handthrown Small Budvase with Gunmetal Glazing (LEO Design)

From the Prinknash Abbey, some 100 miles Northwest of London, comes this little hand-thrown bud vase, finished with a handsome gunmetal glaze.  It was made by Benedictine monks in the 1960's. Though small, it makes a handsome stand-alone in a small spot—or as punctuation for a larger collection.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
