Georgiana Tulipiere No. 23
Georgiana Tulipiere No. 23 is a decorative yet functional centrepiece by Derbyshire-based ceramicist, John Wheeldon. Each spout is designed to hold a single, elegant stem. Once 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.
