Hello, my name is Kerstin Frajese and I design and make vases out of wood and glass for my shop, My Flower Meadow. I live in Düsseldorf, Germany, with my husband Mike, my 8-year-old daughter Fee, and her two cats, Mucks and Maja.

I have worked in my restoration studio for more than 20 years, using many different kinds of wood. It was always very hard for me to throw away the leftover timber. My daughter inspired me to start making vases from these scraps – she collects so many flowers on walks that we didn’t have enough vessels to put them into. The wooden vases didn’t last long on our table, because my friends adored them and took them away. And so The Flower Meadow started.

My years of work as a conservator made me love working with different fancy lumbers. I choose unique pieces of wood with character because I want to show how special nature can be.

My process starts by selecting the wood. Next, I cut, drill, and sand the most beautiful pieces. After a special oil and wax treatment, the unique character of every piece of wood appears.

With Etsy, the world comes to me here in Düsseldorf. I am able to showcase my table decorations worldwide from my home. Having buyers from countries like the USA, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and Mauritius is very exciting for me! I love to think about my vases all over the world.

My business makes me feel good. I work hard, more hours than ever, but I love it. I have always been creative, but with My Flower Meadow I am even more so.
