 Designer: Rachel Bishop

Limited Edition: 50

Butterflies with forewings closed, circle the shoulder of the vase before dropping into open wings and revealing the true shape of the dark blue eyespots. Shaded black, midnight blue and cornflower-blue, the butterflies frame a pale milk-coloured centre from the contrasting midnight blue ground. With the surreal colour palette chosen by the Senior Designer, Butterfly Tears has dark blue eyespots shaped like tears which fall from the butterfly’s closed wings, seemingly to send a message of hope as the wings open to reveal a heart shape at the base of the vase. Interestingly, Damien Hurst’s painting ‘Requiem, White Roses & Butterflies’ (Wallace Collection), used this very same colour palette with a butterfly design formed to manipulate a timeless image of hope into an image which gives the viewer a frosty chill against the eternal darkness. This tempting limited edition of only 50 pieces is designed by Rachel for those with speed who light up faces with pure joy.
