British luxury brand Wedgwood has collaborated with leading product and interior designer Lee Broom to create a collection of limited edition vases and bowls based on their iconic Jasperware.
Broom says “I wanted to retain the very classic Wedgwood silhouette but strip back the ornamentation. I then looked at combining the graphic stripes with postmodern elements, such as introducing vibrant colours and high gloss lacquered textures which starkly juxtapose the very matte biscuit finish of the traditional Jasperware.”
Each piece is handcrafted by skilled artisans using traditional techniques. The short video (link below) shows the extraordinary skills employed to create Broom’s designs.
“I don’t collaborate very often, but Wedgwood has a heritage and vision that resonates with what I do,” says Broom. “Jasperware hasn’t been touched by many other designers, so I was very excited to be asked to create these new pieces, and I loved the idea of making a collector’s item.”
