In collaboration with Bridgehampton-based ceramic artist Mary Jaffe, bring the studio experience home by choosing and glazing one of her original hand-shaped vases.
In this Vase Glazing Custom Boxed Kit, you may choose your specific vase and color palette and we will deliver the kit to you in a handmade Mind Offline Cedar Box from Grain in Amagansett. An upgrade from the Vase Glazing Starter Kit, this collection also comes complete with all the materials and tools you will need to create a unique design of your own plus a natural sponge and the keepsake box (perfect for gifting the finished work or to store your making materials.
After completion, we will pick up your custom work and take it to the kiln for firing in Mary's studio and then return it back to you to enjoy. Shapes are one-of-a-kind so will vary but most vases are 5-5 1/2 inches tall and 3-6 inches wide.

Each kit comes with three colors, including one jar of ivory glaze which works well to blend and mute the richer accent colors or to create a gradient effect. Any unpainted space will be clear glazed and will show the color of the clay after firing.

Small children should be supervised while glazing to avoid misapplication of the product and breakage of the vase. Glaze is nontoxic in small quantities but does contain very trace amounts of metal. Glaze will generally wash off hair and clothing with soap and water but we recommend wearing a smock or old t-shirt if you have. Be sure to use clean hands when glazing as body oils or lotions can interfere with adherence to the pottery. Surface area should also be clean for best results.
