White Bloom III

Lucinda Kirkby
White Bloom III 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. Paper-thin white petals, each of which are individually applied, seem to grow organically out of the piece.

Each delicate 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.
