I was bummed to find out that these vases are not waterproof and leak water...so basically they are just decorative. The product information and description should note that.
Thank you so much for your feedback, although we’re sorry to hear we bummed you out regarding our vases. Believe us when we say that we’d love nothing more than to style these all over with floral arrangements but, alas, terra-cotta is is known for sweating. So, not ideal for flowers or greenery that need water to stay fresh. We’ll certainly take a second look at our description to ensure we make note of this. Thank you again for bringing this to our attention — you truly help make us better! Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
GROSSLY OVER PRICED.
Hi Diane, Thanks for reaching out. The Engobe Vessel is crafted by master artisans, working in a fair trade environment. Our artisan partners are paid under fair-trade standards, receiving the best prices for their artistry and expertise. For most of products, we price them so that one-third goes to our artisan partners, one-third to The Citizenry, and one-third to packaging/shipping. We hope that helps to explain the price a bit. If there's anything our team can do to help, please reach out at email@example.com. - The Citizenry Team
Wonderful accent in my home. I love the shape and the color. They look great with pampas grass and eucalyptus in them. The only thing I noticed is that when I used it as a vase for fresh flowers with water, the vessel seemed to be stained by the water level when there was water in it. Perhaps not made for fresh florals. Beautiful either way!
