Product Details


Celebrating Women in Craft ….A quirky, folksy and unique homage to the great British garden designer Gertrude Jekyll and her protégé and friend the equally famous architect Edwin Lutyens.

Weight: 954 gm
Dimensions: 12 × 9 × 24 cm

There are many narrative layers to this piece.
I have made the piece intentional folksy in its nature and looking like an old garden ornament.
The piece features Gertrude holding a flowerpot containing Edwin to indicate how she helped him to flourish.
Incised into her skirt are the faint sketched out details of a Lutyens style house.
She has been made within the Surrey Hills just a few miles from Gurtrude Jekyll’s home Munsted Wood using clay from the the area and although not entirely watertight she could be used as a vase to hold a single stem of the rose “Gertrude Jekyll”
