True Colours Vases
by Lex Pott for & Tradition
Each vase in the series is made from a different oxidised metal and also features a highly polished segment. The subtly chromatic result shows the natural colours of the metal, both in its polished and oxidised state.
The seven vases are made from copper, steel, brass, and aluminium, each giving rise to different colour combinations that are organic and inherent to the materials. “By showing both the original and oxidised colour in one product,” says designer Lex Pott, “the viewer is made aware of its material qualities.” In addition to the rich palette of True Colours, the contrast between each metal in its highly polished state and the matte, variegated hues of their oxidised counterparts provides a compelling demonstration of the full spectrum of texture and colour latent in the material.
Because oxidisation is an organic process, each vase is both unique and reproducible at the same time. The vases in the True Colours series vary in size and material, but all follow the same principle. Therefore, while each individual vase works on its own as a standalone object, all seven pieces from the series also complement each other beautifully when displayed together. With its delicate ruby reds, rusty browns, cobalt blues, its mints and its umbers, True Colours offers a stunning display of
the true preciousness of the everyday materials that we often take for granted.
