Beauty and a sweet, sweet smell, but also the satisfaction of creating something that lasts: the Mesh & Cloth pottery kits are the perfect Mother's Day fit. They contain the most wonderful dried flowers and a pottery kit with everything needed to create a vase for them. This includes clay, tools and even colors - no kiln or wheel needed.
The kit comes with an illustrated step-by-step instruction and a video (both are in English and German) to create a vase using coils, a traditional hand-building technique in pottery. The flowers are supplied by Berlin-based Madame Fleurs and just the perfect size for a small potted vase.
Elisabetta Lombardo, the artist behind Mesh & Cloth, explains the idea for the kit: "This year more than any other, I am rediscovering the importance of small gestures. My mother lives in Italy and through we don't often spend Mother's Day together, I usually send her flowers. She loves flowers and taught me as a child how to dry flowers from our garden. We had lines and lines of flowers hanging from shelves all over our kitchen and hallways. This year I will be sending her something a little different and I hope many others will join in! "
This is not only great for Mother's Day, but also for any other occasion to say "I'm thinking of you". As with all pottery kits from Mesh & Cloth, the vase kit can be personalised with a greeting card. And in addition to sending a kit to a beloved one, it's possible to order another kit (without flowers) to another address for a virtual pottery party.
