Ilex Studio brings people closer to nature through great, functional design. Their first product, the Acorn Vase, is a beautiful vessel to grow small oak trees in. One can view the roots, seed, and sprout first hand as it matures while keeping the seed dry and the roots healthy. The shape holds the water from evaporating and magnifies the roots to provide a fascinating view to watch them prosper in their life-sustaining glory.
The Acorn Vase includes a much-beloved handbook with detailed instructions for germinating the seed, helpful tips for growing the plant in the vase and repotting as well as artistic and historical references.
