Iris Collection I
The Iris Collection I is a collection of unique, handmade vases by London-based ceramicist Charlotte McLeish. Iris, in Greek mythology, is the personification of the rainbow and (in Homer’s Iliad, for example) a messenger of the gods. According to the Greek poet Hesiod, she was the daughter of Thaumas and the ocean nymph Electra. Influenced by this myth and ancient Greek and Egyptian ceramics, and enamoured by the small-scale classical perfume bottles on display at The British Museum, Charlotte’s latest collection ties in beautifully with her previous work and offers a pure, refined take on a traditional style. Made from stoneware clay and finished in a dry, chalky dolomite glaze, these are suitable for displaying flowers or as a stand alone decorative piece.
