Established in 1857, Jars Ceramistes makes ultra-durable plates, bowls, cups, and serving pieces in distinct colours and shapes. They fire clay just once at the high temperature of 1280°C rather than the standard three times – an eco-friendly practice that results in hard-wearing ceramics that resist cracking, chipping and fading. This matt white decorative vase, at its widest point, is 17cm – the same as its height. The soft shape and texture is contrasted with polished, extended lines that end at the top of the vase. The design is inspired by the Japanese concept of Wabi-sabi, which celebrates the beauty of imperfection. Use this vase to display fresh or dried flowers at the table or as a decorative object on a bookshelf or mantelpiece.
Why we love it

About The Brand
Jars’ history spans more than 150 years. Founded by a potter named Pierre Jars, deeply guarded craft secrets have been passed down through generations to make out-of-the-ordinary ceramics and glazes in their factory in Anneyron, France. This know-how has earned Jars prestigious EPV (French Companies of Living Heritage) status.
Since nature is a constant source of inspiration for Jars, they take care to implement eco-friendly practices like:
- Firing their products only once at high heat, significantly reducing energy use
- Recycling water and china clay mixes, ensuring no pollutants extend to the factory’s surrounding areas
- Recycling exhaust heat from the kilns for use in the biscuit (clay) dryers
We love the soft, organic shapes of their Maguelone range, as well as the artfully ‘cracked’ glazes of their Tourron range.Shop Jars
