Exclusive

Handmade floral vase, created especially for the British Museum by the artist Justine Munson.

The forms and decoration of Justine’s work are influenced by nature and for this special collaboration with the British Museum she has been inspired by the work of colonist and artist John White. The botanical prints on the porcelain depict Hyacinth (Hyacinthus orientalis) and Apennine Anemone (Anemone apennina).

Each vase is individually made in England by Justine. She begins by hand-making the porcelain canvas before firing it. The next stage involves drawing on it using a mixture of oxides before fixing the decoration with a second firing. Finally, the work is glazed and fired for the last time at around 1250c to vitrify the porcelain and intensify the translucency.

Each piece is an individual and unique work of art, exclusive to the British Museum.
