There is not much of a story behind the vessels. One of the younger gals in John’s Mother’s fiber arts group made some and we all loved them and so she taught a class showing us her tricks.
They work as vases for live flowers if a slender tubular glass vase is inserted in them, and for silk flowers just as they are.
Some shapes are good as a hostess gift filled with nuts or small candies. I’ve made one for myself to hold the four TV tuners required here if one wants to watch television. And then of course there’s the possibility of sending a monetary gift or gift card and wanting something other than an envelope to hold the gift!
