This year is expected to be a big year for British designer Lee Broom. He is celebrating a decade in the business with Time Machine: a retrospective show of limited edition pieces from past collections at Milan design week. At the same time he’s also expanding stateside.
Recently Lee Broom has collaborated with one of Britain’s most iconic heritage brands – Wedgwood. Let’s take a look a the collection!
Bowl on Red Sphere, £7,500
You can find the present range only at Harrods. The range set comprises vases and bowls based on classic Wedgwood silhouettes from different periods, each perched on jauntily colored spheres and rectangles.
“I don’t collaborate very often, but Wedgwood has a heritage and vision that resonates with what I do. Jasperware hasn’t been touched by many other designers, so I was very excited to be asked to create these new pieces, and I loved the idea of making a collector’s item.”
Vase on Blue Rectangle, £7,000
Other pieces in the collection are based on the Acorn Vase, the Mythological Beast Vase and the 1202 Vase.
Vase on Orange Sphere, £12,000
The Vase on Orange Sphere (£12,000), for example, is a reworking of the Panther Vase from the late 18th century, so named because its handles resemble panther heads.
“Postmodernism has influenced my work a lot over the past few seasons and I felt that this aesthetic, although the opposite of Wedgwood classicism, complemented it brilliantly,”
