A shallow ceramic base and an acrylic tray dotted with brass pins make up this out-of-the-ordinary vase. Put a single flower on a pin and it stands up straight, taking in water from the vase's base kind of like a straw (for you science types, the technical process is called capillary action). It will drink only as much as it needs.
We found that the vase works with flowers that have thicker, non-woody stems, like tulips.
The design is named after the Florida Everglades, which shares a similar low-water growing environment. But unlike the dense wetlands, this vase showcases the loveliness of each individual bloom.
