VASES WITH FACES: We guess calling these handmade Michelle Valigura vessels "vases" might be a bit too pat. They aren't traditional in the least, and we don't even know we'd put flowers or sticks or decorative baubles in them. They stand fine and strong just empty and on their own. Artist Amanda Visell turned us onto them -- check out Ms. Visell's work here -- and we're thinking graduation gift. Or Mother's Day. Something for the artist and unique individual in your life. MAGIC VESSEL: They're $75 each, and come in different glazes and sizes; find 'em at Switcheroo.
