Poole Pottery launches Lapis at Top Drawer

Displaying the gem-like qualities of its mineral namesake, handcrafted and hand-decorated using Poole’s artisan decorating techniques, the range includes three Asymmetrical Vases and one Bowl.

Lapis brings a new direction to Poole’s glaze effects, combining an ultra-smooth satin finish reminiscent of a stone worn smooth by the elements with a highly textured surface in a contemporary form. Tones of grey are accented with the rich Lapis blue, suggesting the natural geological character of this semi-precious stone. Coloured glazes are applied by hand in a stepped block decoration following the contours of each pot and then highlighted with brush stokes creating a truly individual work of art.

Skilfully made in England and signed by the artist, each piece gives reverence to Poole’s history and attributes in contemporary asymmetric form. Each of the exciting four distinctive Lapis pieces is attractively gift boxed and perfect for instore display.

Lapis can be seen at Top Drawer today and tomorrow, Stand C21
