Georgiana Flower Brick (Large)

John Wheeldon
Georgiana Flower Brick (Large) is a decorative and functional centrepiece by Derbyshire-based ceramicist, John Wheeldon. Each hole 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 flower bricks, 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.

The Georgiana Flower Brick is handbuilt with clay sourced from Stoke On Trent.

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.
