Round Bud Vase
BY Heami Lee
Hand-crafted from porcelain and pure silver, Heami Lee’s Round Silver Bud Vase is distinguished by its intricate texture and shimmering, radiant finish.
Heami Lee’s Round Silver Bud Vase begins as a vessel of unglazed porcelain, which the artist bisque fires at her small studio and showroom in Seoul, South Korea. She then coats the piece in pure silver, fires it again, and polishes it by hand, repeating the process three to four times to achieve its lustrous, glimmering finish—designed to age gracefully and develop a rich, natural patina over time.
