As a city, we’ve developed kind of a thing for greenery. Upscale plant shops keep opening, and local floral designers have become mini-celebs. Hell, even Wawa has a green wall.

The best way to get in on the action when you, um, lack a green thumb? With this Cloud 9 Clay vase by popular Kensington artist Peyton Flynn. Her sleek ceramic pieces are dynamic sculptures but also quite functional — and, most importantly, can transform a single blossom into something extraordinary.

Periwinkle Pearl mini Donut vase, from $88 at Moon + Arrow, Queen Village.
