Leaf by Haberdashery is a bone china hanging sculpture, inspired by the autumnal season of London's great parks; it creates a striking blend of reflected light and shadow to enhance any space it hangs within.
Each delicate leaf is slip-cast moulded in Stoke on Trent and then hand finished in a variety of lustres and glazes including 14 karat gold, real platinum and pure white. The product system offers a range of ceiling plate shapes and sizes and include integrated down lights, with the whole package coming pre-assembled ready for shipping around the world.
The opulent lustres on each leaf create fantastic reflected light to complement the sumptuous shadows cast by the canopy, resulting in an installation that fills the surrounding space with light and shadow, increasing the scale of the sculpture and creating harmony with its environment. Haberdashery are interested in harnessing the sense of theatre that light can bring to a space, and use their in house team of artists, designers and engineers to create this drama from beautifully formed sculptural objects in a wide variety of materials and techniques.
Leaf was formally launched at this year’s Design Junction, and will be available in the UK through the FBC store in West London.
London-based Haberdashery have been installing bespoke versions for high end luxury clients in some of the most exclusive addresses around the world, with the original bespoke leaves being hand made by UK ceramicist Jasmine Rowlandson who collaborated with Haberdashery to develop the leaf form.
