Bole Vase

Truly Truly collaborated with Dutch ceramics manufacturer Cor Unum and undertook an extensive research into various surface techniques. Driven by porcelain’s intriguing ability to hold very fine detail, the designers found a texture with a natural quality that reminded them
of a particular, rough eucalyptus bark. The refined, oscillating pattern offers an alluring sense of tactility.


Two-tone glazing creates an illusive visual thrill, making the vase alter in appearance when seen up close or from far away. The blending of colours is reminiscent of the complexity of colour achieved in textiles.


The Bole vase is a remarkably ambiguous object: the texture is
both organic and geometric; the tall standing volume is inspired by
an abstracted interpretation of a tree’s trunk. The fascinating imperfections from the ceramic process makes each vase unique in texture & colour, and slightly varied in size. Available in two heights, Standard and Tall.
