small copper potter vessel


This petite charmer is the smallest version in the potter vessel family, ideal for showing off a single bud or a tiny handful of field flowers. Its minimalist form of uncoated polished copper takes advantage of the metal’s organic oxidation process. As a living mineral, copper leaves traces of everything that touches it, including air, which tarnishes the surface over time to a deep brown patina. Our blacksmith initiates the chemical process at the workshop with a measured degree of contact to ensure your vessel arrives with signs of oxidation already in development. Also available in mediumtall and large.

Handcrafted in Toronto, each vessel comes with a glass insert for wet arrangements.

Shipping and delivery: This item is custom-made and typically ships within 4 weeks after purchase.

Care: The patina can be reduced or removed using a simple cleaning paste of table salt diluted in a ¼ cup of lemon juice. Rub the paste over the surface using a soft cloth to reach the desired shimmer. Do not rub with too much abrasion, as copper is prone to scratching. Rinse with warm water and dry thoroughly with a clean cloth.
