It might not be the best time to be talking about bud vases as I can already see the trees outside my window turning from green to yellow, but there's always something seasonal that can be placed in one of these and they make great gifts on the cheap. Above are Japanese Octahedron Vases ($10 each) made with an earthy ceramic glaze. I want a hundred of these! Below are Heath bud vases ($22 each); one of the few remaining mid-century American potteries still in existence. Below those are clear pebble vases ($19) by Sugahara Glassworks in Japan.
