Inspired by the Pacific ocean and the sea of life thereunder, this blue sea urchin vase is a wondrous piece of hand-thrown pottery. Rustic and yet modern, it has a paradoxically industrial undertone considering its origins, similar to bolted metal. This supplier employs one hundred and sixty-three people both men and women and they all work at the factory in the Philippines. The management and supervisory staff are given vehicles and housing facilities, in addition the employees are given incentives for improvements in productivity. The employees are encouraged to take full advantage of being in the workplace to develop themselves, to be proud and conscientious in their approach and create new possibilities for themselves. The beautiful ceramic items this company produces are hand thrown on a potters wheel, experimental glazes are used and patterns and textures hand applied. Through organisations they are affiliated with, they sponsor scholarships, medical missions, employment and skills training, and feeding programmes for school children. Environmentally aware, they recycle water, handle hazardous waste responsibly, recycle waste and plant trees. An authentic and charming little pot that would pair well with cacti and metal objects (MH521A/B) on a hall table.
