Brim Vases Series
August 2022

“Typically when making ceramics we want to remove all traces of the manufacturing process, but with the Brim Vase I wanted to celebrate these interactions and tell the unique story of each vase’s past in someone’s hands.”

– Ann Kristin Einarsen

What began as a project of exploration for Norwegian designer Ann Kristin Einarsen has now redefined what a vase could and should look like.

Throughout 2019 Ann Kristin tasked herself with making, glazing, and firing a new ceramic vase every day, sharing the results via her Instagram page. Months and weeks were divided into different themes as she worked systematically through several forms, methods, and finishes.

From this final collection of #365vases, Northern exclusively shares the soft, light coloured earthenware clay and organic shaped Brim Vase.

Available in two sizes, Brim is made by skilled craftspeople in Italy. While any abnormalities are usually cut away after the casting and drying process, here they are celebrated, with the inside and brim of the vase glazed, highlighting each one’s individual beauty and unique personality.
