Vivian Howard & Haand Small Driftwood Vase

Regular price $55.00
/

"My first memory of flowers was of my mom planting many bright red geraniums each summer. I loved the way they smell, and to this day, I still plant one in a pot of my own.


The Small Driftwood Vase is just so beautiful- it gives you the opportunity to not focus so much on the flowers and more so on the vase. I spent a lot of my early life using salvaged vases, so the adult me can certainly appreciate the beauty of a vase. Someone once told me that cut flowers are art for people who don't have any money. I think this merges that idea because the vase is definitely a part of the art that is flowers.

I tend to be really keen on wild things when it comes to flower arrangements. I often put things in vases that are naturally occurring around me-- flowers from ditches and lots of greenery. With this thought, no matter what time of year it is, there are always things to find to put in your vases without having to buy them." - Vivian Howard, Kinston, NC, April 2022

Is your dinnerware dishwasher & microwave safe?

Yes, our plates are designed for the rigors of restaurant kitchens and will be safe in your dishwasher & microwave. For cleaning we recommend using detergents that are gentle and environmentally friendly such as Seventh Generation.

How do I clean cutlery marks off the plates?

Any matte glaze can show cutlery marking over time. This is a factor of the glaze being stronger than the flatware. Any marking is only temporary and do not worry, it is not harming the glaze. To remove these marks, we recommend scrubbing with a gentle abrasive cleaner such as Bar Keeper’s friend.

Is your dinnerware oven safe?

Yes, our plates are also safe in your oven up to 400°F but they are not bakeware or intended for routine use in the oven. Always be careful to prevent subjecting them to thermal shock (going from extreme cold to extreme hot or visa versa). Thermal shock can break or damage porcelain pottery.

Are your products durable?

Our work is used daily in over 175 restaurants around the world. Fast paced restaurants put our plates through rigors that they’ll never experience in your home. You can use our plates just like you’re accustomed to and when taken care of and stored properly, our wares will last a lifetime (or a few!).

How do Haand plates stack?

Our plates are designed to stack in your cupboard. We do not recommend stacking plates more than 12" high.

What does it mean when a product is out-of-stock or low stock?  Will you make more?

Yes! All of our products are made in small batches and we're in continuous production to keep our website stocked. If the product you're interested in is out-of-stock or low stock, don't worry, we're busy making more!

Versatile, Everyday Beauty

Versatility is not talked about enough. It is the superstar, secret power of a truly great object. The best tableware can be used for any meal: a formal wedding brunch, unexpected visitors staying for breakfast, a picnic, a pretend (or real) tea party, or a wake.

Sustainable Heirlooms

Haand always designs our work to last a lifetime and we want to highlight something with this collaboration that can often be overlooked: buying a well-made object with the intention of passing it on to the next generation can have a profound impact on your carbon footprint.

Shipped with care & love

We package every order carefully, ensuring our pieces arrive on your doorstep intact. For this collaboration, we are including a special recipe from Vivian and illustrated by Mark in every order.

"I think of these dishes as like a really good cast iron skillet. You invest in it, keep it for years and pass it down."

Curated for Versatility

"The collection is so versatile. The saucer with the coffee cup is not just a saucer. It's a great cocktail party plate. The share plates are perfect for salad or dessert. It's what we put in front of every guest at Lenoir because everything we serve is family style."

- Vivian Howard

A bit different in texture/shap

It is beautiful and looking for special flowers or greens but so far, it stays on my cookbooks in the kitchen to admire.
