The artichoke is handmade in durable glazed ceramic and has a beautiful pattern inspired by nature. The decoration is carved out of the wet clay in various ornate foliage. The vase can be used for flowers and twigs or just as it is, as a beautiful decorative detail.
The inspiration for the Artichoke came from the delight of the incredibly plump thistle bud that the Artichoke actually is.
"In my sculptural forms there is often a regularity of cut-out or applied foliage. The artichoke is an enormous thistle bud that also inspires respect and admiration with its resplendent pomposity. Among everything from tuber to bud in the plant kingdom that has inspired me is the "crown of the work", which is constantly reappearing in new guises." Eva Paradis
