Covet: Drip Vases by Brian Giniewski

Dipped Earthenware Vases At Gretel Home


Photo by Claudia Uribe Touri   for   Gretel Home

These earthenware Drip vases are hand-made in Syracuse, New York by Brian Giniewski.  Glossy glaze, formulated in such a way that allows the artist to suspend it’s drip,  is juxtaposed against a grainy, matte finish of the vase’s body. Alluring pastel colors and earthy textures in sophisticated but not too serious silhouettes.

In August I put together an interview on Design Milk with shop owner Andrea Bates, proprietor of Future and Found. Not only is it a fabulous brick & mortar in North London, it’s got plenty of goodness online, and the website was just treated to a redesign. Many charming modern artisan items to be had here.
