Earlier this year Glyndebourne Opera House invited us to create a collection of exclusive pieces in response to their gardens and grounds in East Sussex.
"...Glyndebourne is a unique and inspiring place and my tour of the grounds left me with a strong impression of the gardens and the sense of connection that those who visit have with the landscape..." The resulting design is inspired by the magnificent and ancient Mulberry tree that grows in the corner of the main lawn where, over the years, many picnics have taken place beneath its branches and many jars of jam made from its fruit.
The Mulberry Tree design began as a one off blown cameo vase onto which Louise drew the original sketches and developed the pattern.
Colin then blew a collection of individual lead crystal bowls that Louise hand etched using sand carving.
We are so pleased that a limited number of these pieces are now available to purchase exclusively from Glyndebourne.
