The Calendar Flower Basin 

I have always delighted in the wonderful colours and forms of nature. With this in mind, I created the flower basin as a way to bring the outdoors indoors. This basin materialized unexpectedly as I played with possible petal shapes. The result is a beautiful, balanced and tactile basin which evokes perceptions of fragrance and colour.

I chose a deep blue glossy glaze with hints of green and highlighted the edges of the petals with a second creamy glaze, which created a flowing effect running down to the centre and accentuating the slope of the basin.

This basin offers many possibilities. The harmonious wheel pattern could be repeated with fewer, wider petals, and the basin could be finished in a wide range of tones.
