£160
Georgiana Flower Dome is a decorative and functional centrepiece by Derbyshire-based ceramicist, John Wheeldon. Each spout is designed to hold a single, elegant stem. Once filled and layered with blooms and colour, the result is a simple yet seductive floral arrangement. Inspired by 18th century Dutch tulipieres, John has spent the past year experimenting with different kinds of vessels to hold flowers, resulting in a series of Creamware bricks, domes and tulipieres made exclusively for The New Craftsmen.

Process

The Georgiana Flower Brick is handbuilt with clay sourced from Stoke On Trent. The holes are cut with precision by hand and small decorative feet with John's signature stamp embellishments are applied prior to firing. It is then finished with a transparent glaze, which has been hand-mixed with a custom blend of John's coloured stains.
The Maker John Wheeldon Ceramicist - East Midlands

Creating tableware that contemporises traditional 18th century creamware designs, Derbyshire-based ceramicist John Wheeldon draws inspiration from early pioneers in the field, such as Josiah Wedgewood, Thomas Whieldon and William Greatbach. To decorate his work, John has manufactured his own specialist tools, such as roulettes and handle dies, based on examples found in museums originating from the 1700s.
