The Garden Edit is a new online store set up by gardener, John Tebbs, who has brought together a beautiful collection of timeless pieces for, and inspired by, the garden. If you are looking for a functional piece of art for a Christmas present this year, then you’ve found the right place. Everything is handcrafted: planters by ceramicist Pilar Wiley, copper bird feeders designed by American Vasse Vaught and made using vintage tools in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, brass and cane watering cans by Bauhaus trained designer Carl Aubock – this is no ordinary collection of products and no ordinary shopping experience.
Take a look for yourselves…
Designed in 1948 by Carl Aubock, this indoor watering can is handmade from polished and patinated brass, with cane wrapped around its handle.
Designed by American Vasse Vaught, this fly-through feeder has a watertight removable copper tray and can be used as a bird bath. Made from 16oz copper, it can be cleaned to retain its shine or left to patinate.
Handcrafted by American ceramicist Pilar Wiley. These meteor planters are wheel-thrown and made from altered stoneware.
Spade with Steps by Sneeboer & Zn. This spade has a turned handle made of ash and a hand-forged stainless steel blade. It has a “D” handle for ease of grip, a step to protect your boot, and a smaller, shorter blade making it perfect for turning over an allotment or decorative border.
Matthias Kaiser is an Austrian potter who uses unrefined materials for his ceramics and often exposes the process of making to give pieces a raw quality. This vase is made from porcelain and makes a wonderful container for long-stemmed flowers or a single twig.
Designed in 1949 by Carl Aubock and crafted from brass. This handmade Ivy Vase was conceived post war when cut flowers were too expensive, allowing you to grow more affordable ivy in the house.
Such wonderful design and craft; I’m in awe.
