A closer look at Ashby

Historically, artichokes represents hope, peace and prosperity. Place the Ashby artichoke among books in the living room or study, or crockery on a kitchen shelf. Use one on its own, a matching pair either side of a stack of books, or one large and one small nestled together.

The material

All the Ashby pieces are made of stoneware, so they’re lightweight but reassuringly robust.

The finish

Ashby is finished with a high-shine white glaze for a crisp, clean look. It’s not rustic looking like the other ornaments so it can bring a completely different look to your room.

Design details

For a house to feel like a home, it needs things that are purely decorative. Like a picture or a sculpture that will add life and texture to a room. Our ornaments have lots of different finishes, so they look like they’ve been collected over time, and are all part of your unique story.

Design inspiration

Artichokes are an ancient vegetable so it’s not surprising they’re surrounded by symbolism. They represent hope, peace and prosperity. Also, the artichoke (like the pine cone and pineapple) displays the Golden spiral or Fibonacci spiral which links to the ‘Golden ratio’ – a mathematical ratio seen universally in nature.
