I got this vase for my husband and I;. It looked so different and beautiful in the picture. But it doesnt do it justice because we couldnt believe how much more stunning and breathtaking. There is something so special about having one of a kind hand made gift made with passion and love. They are not just artisans, they are artists who make this earth a a more environmentally friendly reminder of how each one of us can learn to preserve our earth.
