Gorgeous floral creations crafted in cold porcelain by Vala of Parsi

This small white rose in a sea urchin vase led me to discover Vala's  beautiful world of flowers crafted in cold porcelain clay.  If you would like year round blooms or a wedding bouquet to last for years this is the artist to visit.


The urchin itself is not porcelain, it merely serves as a little vase.


How she captures these carnations is really something. 
Vala's flower petals exude the translucence of real flowers since
cold porcelain has a more natural appearance then other polymer
clays or the porcelain we are used to seeing.


If you decide on fresh flowers for your wedding but would like an
everlasting bouquet or simply must have flowers year round
send Vala a nice clear photo.
She can replicate your arrangement for you.

Yes, replicate since she does not use molds.
A specific detail that sets her work apart.


 Vala also makes these sweet little arrangements in vases.
Precious under a little cloche don't you think?


 I thought the white roses would look stunning in a vintage 
silver plated teapot, mercury glass or white ironstone vase.


The detail of and soft look of this orchid had me taking a
second look.  I'm torn between the white rose or this
orchid in white.

Vala's shop is called Parsi and can be found on Etsy.
Do stop by to get your favorite flowers made so you can
enjoy them year round.

Planning a wedding, or other special event or party?
Stay tuned for some upcoming posts.

The fine yet, required print.  This is not a paid endorsement or advertisement.  I approached Vala asking if she would mind if I wrote a post and used her photos. Sometimes, I see the creations of others, and simply choose to celebrate and share their work.  If it brings them a sale, great. I'm happy.
