These incredible ceramic flowers are the creation of London-based ceramist and graphic designer, Vanessa Hogge, whose one-off designs are sold under the brand Wallflower London.
Inspired by all things botanical she transforms earthenware and porcelain into dahlias, chrysanthemums, agapanthus, daisies, agaves and roses. In an article on Tenderfoot Design she says this about her work:
â€œI was working as a graphic designer and it was soul destroying doing corporate work. So I left, thinking I would work as a freelancer. There was always a bag of clay around the house. One morning, I just started working with it and gradually the idea of decorative flowers for walls came out of the clay.â€
â€œMy mother and grandmother were fierce gardeners. I grew up in Africa with these gorgeous plants and flowers. I havenâ€™t followed directly in their footsteps, but the porcelain flowers are my way of keeping the tradition alive.â€
