Although the form of the handmade Kimora vase is somewhat archaic, its matte glaze gives it a modern look. The pale stoneware is high-fired and therefore watertight. Despite this, it is advisable to always use a coaster on sensitive tabletops. Cold water can cause the bottom of ceramic vessels to “sweat” and this water seepage could leave rings on the table. The vase can be washed with warm water and dishwashing liquid.
