Two of these with plants in water look terrific with a couple of talavera Knick knacks in between. These are heavy and feel and look expensive.

Seed Pattern Barro Negro Ceramic Decorative Vase from Mexico, "Barro Negro Seeds"$387.99
By Mexican artisan Anakarem, this decorative vase is handcrafted from black ceramic in the traditional style of handicrafts. She decorates the vase with intricate openwork seed patterns, each incised by hand.
"This vase is one of a kind," the artisan explains. "It is larger than much our work. My father and I crafted it especially for Mexico's prestigious Premio Nacional de la Ceramica, a nationwide competition."
This contest is held annually in artisan town of Tlaquepaque as part of the festivities for its patron saint and Anakarem has won prizes for traditional ceramics. First place winners are exhibited in the National Ceramics Museum Pantaleon Panduro, named for a master artisan (1847-1909) who founded a dynasty of ceramic artists.
