Rose & White Bloom I

£480
Rose & White Bloom I is a decorative porcelain sculpture carefully handcrafted by London-based ceramicist Lucinda Kirkby, inspired by the language of plants.

Drawing its inspiration from plants, dance and architecture, this ethereal sculpture shifts in scale, shape and form depending on how it is viewed. Rose stained and paper-thin petals, which symbolise growth and warmth, nestle between white petals, which seem to grow as if organically from the piece.

Process

Each porcelain sculpture is created by employing a series of hand-building techniques; continually pinching, squeezing and repeatedly pressing the clay until it is paper-thin. Every petal is then attached individually, building up layers upon layers until a bloom begins to emerge, with each blue petal stained by hand.
