This listing is for ONE vase, flowers are not included. You can see my flowers here:

Blue Speckled Sparrow Eggs, 2010
#14 of 14
Approx 9.75" tall
2 1/4" diameter

This series of pipe vases reminds me of sparrow eggs. There is a wonderful chalky blue/white/gold patina that is light and earthy.

I suggest you put your favorite dried flower arrangements in this during your 'off' times of having fresh flowers. You can preserve the life of your vase by putting a glass holder inside of it or just making sure you pat it down with a towel after using it. You can display this outside too, but again, I wouldn't suggest leaving it out in the elements over night, as these are recycled pipes with only interior protection applied. Also good to store long paintbrushes if you are an artist, or other utensils.

I've cleaned this pipe with an eco-friendly degreaser both inside and out. The edges have been ground down to a smooth finish. I've cut up aluminum to make the bottom of the vase and painted the interior with rust converter and protective paint.

Use a glass tube if you want to preserve your vase in the best possible way.

Frequently asked questions about PaulaArt

PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU LIVE IN ALASKA OR HAWAII prior to purchase as shipping may need to be edited on items that do not fit into flat rate/priority boxes. (failure to do so may end up in a cancelled order)

I refund overcharges regardless of the method used as calculated shipping is often a bit 'off' on multiple orders. Don't hesitate to ask what fedex rates are if you see something you really want but are aghast at estimates usps rates!
Keep in mind that just because many of my pieces are heavy metal, things can still break if dropped on the floor. I nut and bolt objects, epoxy them and weld. (even heat welded objects can break if hit just right) I take great care when shipping to protect your art through transit. I am not responsible for what happens to it after you get it! If a pet or child knocks something over and it crashes to the ground and breaks it does not reflect poor craftmanship on my end! Also, keep in mind that I am working with found materials that are aged and in many cases pretty rusted ~ if you leave them outside you can expect more rust over time due to humidity/wetness. If using indoors keep away from sink areas or where water is present.
If over time you notice any rust forming that doesn't bode well with you, GENTLY sand the area and spray or brush on an oil based varnish/polyurethane. Heavily rusted pieces,kitchen & jewelry holders are usually painted and/or varnished twice.
For orders returned to me because you do not like/want the item or failed to read listing details / didn't get quantity you thought you would or notice flaws in photos I will refund you once I have received the order in the same package/condition less shipping of original order. You are responsible for shipping fees back to me with a tracking #.

For orders returned to me because of failure to pick up package due to not wanting to pay duty/custom taxes (if applicable) or for any other reason such as incorrect address/outdated address etc, I will refund for the cost of the item less 15% and less original shipping fee that you paid. I can resend the item (in the states only) to the correct address if you want to pay for shipping again.
Wholesale buyers please convo me if you would like to discuss a bulk order as I offer discounts on orders incrementally.
