Emma McDowall is an artist and designer from Scotland who creates colorful vases using rough concrete as a material. The majority of the vases are coated in pastel paints that give a welcome opposition to the concrete surfaces, working to give the unique irregularities in the rock more attention. Her handmade colorful vases are offered in a vast variety of shapes and sizes, making them suitable to hold plants of any kind.

With the concrete design, the vases are more than durable enough to survive the outdoor elements, however the pastel tones make them a great complementary piece to home interiors as well. Color palettes are diverse as well, with some taking on more vibrant hues and marble-like patterns, whereas others are simply coated in a single color. With this, consumers are able to pick and choose the style that best suits their home.
