Lladro Camellia Centerpiece 11 x 9.75 Limited edition of 500 units
This spring Lladro is launching some striking and spectacular floal compositions. Flowers are in fact probably the brand's most outstanding signature feature, and, while included in many pieces within the Lladro catalogue, it is over one decade since they were the sole focus of a piece. Each one of these compositions is entirely handcrafted, following a very delicate process in which the petals are assembled one by one to achieve unique and unrepeatable creations. Even the fine stamens, in turn topped by delicate anthers, as well as all the little leaves, are modeled and assembled by hand. This completely artisan process requires great skill, not only in modeling the petals and leaves, but also in setting them in place to ensure the correct form and not to affect other parts of the composition. We should also remember that the whole process is made with unfired and therefore, especially delicate porcelain paste. The results of this work are exquisite and beautiful compositions that only nature could possibly outdo. A different flower has been chosen as the focus for each one: peony, iris and camellia. These three main varieties are surrounded by other flowers and plants which are either borrowed from nature or the fruit of the artist's imagination. In Tray with peonies, the dish that acts as the main support comes from the Naturofantastic collection. The other two compositions are joined to wooden bases. In addition, the camellia and iris centerpieces include a glass dome that protects the delicate floral arrangements in a discrete and elegant fashion.
