  • Wow these are the most beautiful vase I have ever seen. I have a persian carpet in my home that is just as beautiful, my place is lacking vases to complete the touch, would love to win these vases to compliment my dining room table.

  • Absolutely Stunning!! Would really love to win this for my 40th Birthday! Make my 40th birthday special with this most loved and wanted giveaway. Holding thumbs! My My twittername:online61524 (Following u bothways on facebook and twitter)

  • What stunning ceramic pieces! Both patterns really stand out and ‘pop’. The Moroccan bowl would be perfect in my lounge which has a very neutral palette of earthy browns and creams.
    The Stoned Cherrie vase would be just right on my dining room table, to pick up the cool blue tones in my table cloth.
    Very chic!

  • These hand painted ceramics will make my wooden dining room table look great and add flair to the dining room.

  • Since moving into our new place with a rather limited amount of furniture and decor pieces we have been slowly building up our ‘own’ taste of style and this was all built off our very first item a Moroccan Puzzle Box, it sits ever so proudly on an old Welsh Dresser that we pain stakinly restored ourselves to give it a modern twist, we have since decided that we are going for a ‘Magic Moroccan’ theme throughout but have not been able to aquire as many true Moroccan pieces as we would have liked. These would undoubtedly add the Moroccan to our Magic and would be ever so loved if they made their way to our little home.

  • The Moroccon Warehouse bowl would look absolutely stunning on the ‘table top’ of our wooden display cabinet with the stained glass windows at the top and the solid doors at the bottom. Colour and design will fit in perfectly. Finishing the picture will be the two brown ceramic resident eagles “standing guard” over the newly added treasure.

    The Stoned Cherrie vase will certainly draw attention and admiration under the light in the corner unit of the built-in bookcase. Standing on a glass shelf it will seem to be floating in thin air – adding to the butterfly feeling of the design.

  • Mmmm, imagine having this on my coffee table? The stuff that dreams are made of. I’ll start saving for a trip to Morocco asap!

  • Why they’d work well in my place?

    I finally get to make a home… newly married, and starting from scratch – literally. In fact, having recently moved to Southern Africa from Canada — the only “home decor” item I brought with me are these South Asian floor cushion covers made with beautiful deep-red velvet & banarsi cloth (woven with golden brocade and slight blue embroidery).

    They would wed perfectly with the Moroccan bowl as a focal point in my new living room. It will be perfect, because I can build the whole space around the the vase and the bowl.

    It’s worth noting, that my dream home would be a Moroccan riad for its gorgeous interior gardens adorned with and colourful tiles & plush floor cushions which I would love to adorn with a fusion of decor items from around the world [Absolutely love: Liz Bruce’s home,

    For now, I’ll live vicariously through these items… and use it as inspiration to paint the stand alone-column by my living room stairs with an arabesque stencil, in a rich Mediterranean blue hue and perhaps block print the same onto some DIY linen cushions.

    Thanks not only for the opportunity to enter — but the accompanied day-dreaming and moment of inspiration 🙂

  • WOW!!!! I’m a Fine & Applied Arts student @ TUT and one of my subjects is ceramics, i am so in love with it I started collecting students, lecturers and artists work. I would LOVE these two beautiful artworks to go home with me and sit on my old wooden toolbox with the rest of my collection. They inspire me to create lots of interesting ceramic works. And hopefully my work would then sit on an famous art collectors shelf in his home 🙂

  • I would place these gorgeous pieces of art on the Cape Dutch chest that I inherited from my Ouma, where they will command center stage in my lounge. Naturally the vase will always have a mix of indigenous flowers from my courtyard garden 🙂
