Artisan crafted vases are one of the most versatile accessories you can use for home decor. Many of us also want them to be functional though, to hold water and flowers.

In any case, there are many artisan-crafted wooden vases out there and they’re a must to have in every home. This is because they add a lot of character to a room.

There are many styles, ranging from bare minimalist to the most ornate designs. Wooden vases also add an exotic warm touch to your spaces.

There’s something very symbolic about these pieces, it may be the reason why the trend is on the rise. You can purchase in countless specialized stores, although the ones that you’ll value most are those you acquire on your travels.

Woodcraft artisans

There are many wonderful artists around the world who manufacture these precious pieces. Thai artisans are among the most popular, but you’ll find wonderful pieces in many countries of Latin America and even here in our country. African artisans make many beautiful pieces as well.

A lot of these objects are even decorated using silkscreen techniques, beads, and dyed inlays. For example, you can find wooden vases that are so polished they actually look like ceramic. They’re all definitely works of art.

Wood carving is a traditional art transmitted from generation to generation since forever. The artisans of each country work the various types of local woods and the objects have diverse functions. The wooden vases they make are exquisite pieces that look just wonderful anywhere.

These objects come in many sizes, some tiny and some huge so you can place them directly on the floor. You don’t have to put anything inside of these as they look great all by themselves. All you need to do is allocate a special corner just for them.

Decorate with artisan-crafted wooden vases

Many of these pieces are in fact waterproof and you can definitely put fresh flowers in them. As you can see, there are no limits when choosing a specific use or location.

Wooden vases are a perfect complement for rustic interiors and yet they also shine with their own light in any other decor style.

For instance, vases with gold metallic inlays perfectly merge the elements in any glam-style room and the contrast of materials adds a lot of character. If you prefer the shabby chic style, choose an aged-looking wooden vase. It’s even better if the vase is old.

Also, a large wooden vase placed on the floor near a window will create an important focal point in a minimalist room.

The pleasure of acquiring artisan-crafted objects

Whenever we think of buying art or any other art object for our homes, the first thing that comes to mind is either illustrations or sculptures. Opt for a wooden vase instead and you’ll add a structural, unique touch. That is, a piece you’ll never see in your friends’ homes.

If in addition to choosing a unique wooden vase it’s also inlaid or lacquered then the effect will be even more extraordinary. You can choose inlays and lacquers in aquamarines and bluish tones and integrate them with some other decorative elements of the same colors.

Cushions are an easy way to do this but you can also integrate them with ceramics in the same colors as those of your wooden vases. Try it, and you’ll see how easy it is to mix and match.

Make your own collections

You’ll see how after you get your first wooden vase you won’t be able to stop and you’ll have to have more. This is regardless of the fact that these pieces are great on their own and don’t really need company. Don’t worry, the feeling of these wooden vases is spectacular either way.

So, pick a spot in your home and make guests of honor out of your wooden vases. You can either arrange them by type and quality of wood or by colors or shapes. This is because the possibilities are endless.

Also, you can put flowers in some of them and leave others empty. Especially those with carved motifs or colored lacquers. These latter ones look magnificent near well-lit areas. So, take the time to illuminate them properly so that they shine as bright as they can.
