The wonderful colours and delightful patterning of orchids gives them a special place among flowers, and their exotic beauty makes them especially prized by horticulturists and lovers of floral displays. In flower lore the orchid represents love, luxury, beauty and also strength. It takes a special level of skill to capture the subtle shading and texture of these marvels of nature in ceramic art.
Our artists at Bronte Porcelain have chosen to depict a spray of Cymbidium Hybrid Orchids, painted by hand onto the smooth, white fine bone china of the Hanley Vase. At 255mm (10 inches) tall, the vase offers a flawless canvas for the artist’s work, creating the intricate detail of the beautiful, mottled flowers, set against the gentle green of the leaves. The clean lines of the cylindrical vase lend themselves perfectly to the contemporary style of the design. This is a beautiful synthesis of traditional craft and modern artistry that would look simply wonderful in almost any setting.
Each vase is made and painted entirely by hand, and is presented in a hand-made, silk-lined box. If you wish, our artist can even add a personal inscription of your choice, added by hand to the base of the piece. And while flowers will inevitably fade and die, you can be sure that the orchids on your vase will remain brilliantly coloured and vibrant, capturing for ever the luxury of these most treasured of flowers.
