Ashby Pear, Medium

Change colour

A closer look at Ashby

We think of nature as our greatest resource for beautiful shapes. The larger-than-life-size Ashby pear can nestle amongst books in the living room or study, or crockery on a kitchen shelf. Use just one; arrange three in a row, or in a group on a platter; or partner it with the life-size Ashby apple.

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 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. You can choose from a crisp clean white, or dark and contemporary, pebble grey.

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

Pear trees take many years to mature and fruit. The 17th century English proverb “Walnuts and Pears you plant for your heirs” explains that. The symbolism of the pear tree and the pear varies from culture to culture but they usually represent life and longevity.
