A French Artist Who Creates Small Gardens for the Table

A French Artist Who Creates Small Gardens for the Table

Cécile Daladier creates vases inspired by flower type; vases that encourage picking flowers from the garden, between the pavement, or from a mountain top. Daladier’s vases encourage instant, simple arrangements; as she says, “a small garden on the table.”

Before working with clay, Daladier studied fine arts and music, drawing inspiration from both water and flowers. So she combined the two to focus on botanicals, singular ceramics that she shapes and fires at her studio in the Drôme region of France. At home in Paris, Daladier collaborates with partner Nicolas Soulier under the name Assaï, building Jardins Miroirs and their Capteurs collection (large-scale glass and iron sculptures made to collect water). Here’s a look at some of her inspiring pieces.

Above: The Tulipier Vase, made for groupings of stems or larger flowers like roses, tulips, and peonies. The little chimneys help hold the natural shape of the bouquet.
