The colors of Spring welcome in the month of March @ J. R. Kortman

As the dreariness of winter fades, March brings the promise of Spring with the soft airy hues of this breezy time of the year. Waving Queen Elizabeth, celebrating her jubilee year, stands in front these charming ceramic vases from Middle Kingdom that take design cues from household utility bottles and presents them as little functional works of art. Soft colors and soft texture are a sweet look for this time or any time of the year. Also pictured is a light yellow "Anna" corkscrew from Alessi and a delicate art glass vase from German glassmaker Michael Schwartzmueller.
