Red Box Gum Cube Vase
A soft edged, sculpted form finished with a delicate speckle glaze. The Cube Vases have curved, rounded edges with a generous opening to showcase all types of flowers and foliage.
Each surface design has been originally hand-drawn and painted in Angus and Celeste's Melbourne studio and then carefully printed in bright ceramic pigments. Handmade in Australia in small batches, these vases are crafted in stoneware clay and are glazed inside and out with an enduring soft speckled finish.
The design for the ‘Red Box Gum’ Cube Vase was carefully painted from the leaves of the red box eucalyptus or Eucalyptus polyanthemos. An iconic Australian eucalyptus, native to eastern Australia, it is known for its broad circular leaves that are uniquely shaped by comparison to most other Australian eucalyptus species. The leaves are often a unique silvery grey colour and are commonly referred to as the silver-dollar gum.
The red box gum tree is a favourite of Angus and Celeste, not only because their flowers make great tasting honey, but because they are a sight to behold, growing prolifically throughout the Nillumbik shire in Victoria, along the banks of the Birrarung (Yarra River).
