Summer Versus Winter Vessel
Summer Versus Winter Vessel by Laura Carlin was inspired by Laura’s residency at Holkham Hall, facilitated by The New Craftsmen. In response to the nature in which Sir Thomas Coke - First Earl of Leicester who commissioned the design and build of Holkham Hall - curated his art collection, Laura has created a series of ceramic vessels. Her vases and bowls draw on the themes found in the paintings and statues collected by Coke and positioned in conversation with another. The Summer Versus Winter Vessel draws its main inspiration from the paintings at Holkham which represent summer and winter. The vessel features illustrated mythological gods representing the seasons, such as the God of the Harvest, and the corn, alongside Autumn and Winter. Laura has also immortalised the extraordinary wildlife of Holkham in this playful and unique, one-off piece.
