Product Description

The skill and versatility of Bronte Porcelain’s ceramic artists are perfectly illustrated by the Dragonfly and Waterlily Elmley Bowl. As well as capturing the power of birds of prey and the colourful plumage of exotic hummingbirds and macaws, our artists are equally at home depicting some of the most delicate aspects of the natural world. The fine beauty of water lilies has of course inspired artists to produce great art for centuries, notably Monet, who created hundreds of paintings of the flowers in the later years of his life.

The design on this bowl is a wonderful example of the talents of Bronte’s artists. The smooth, curved surface of the fine bone china Elmley Bowl offers a wide canvas on which to evoke the translucence of water lilies, the subtle colour of their flowers, and above them the delicate, exquisite dragonflies with their gossamer wings. It takes the most gentle touch and the finest brushes to achieve this breathtaking effect, which is heightened further by the use of raised paste and enamel to add depth and relief to the image. The bowl must return to the kiln several times during this process, before it is finished off with the application of 22 carat gold to the rim and foot. If you wish a personal inscription can also be added to the base by the artist.

With a diameter of 360mm (14 inches), the beautiful Elmley Bowl would be a wonderful centrepiece for any setting, as well as a magnificent example of the finest ceramic art. The bowl is supplied in a hand-made, silk-lined presentation box.
