FJURA | Sweet Pea & Red Charm Peony
Summer is here, bringing with it the next instalment of our collaboration with Simone Gooch of Fjura. Inspired by the simple idea that we provide a vessel and Simone the flowers, this new arrangement showcases sweet peas in various shades of pink, offset with a Red Charm peony and nestled together in Silo Studios’ Tela Carafe.
A poetic inspiration, sweet peas are a familiar sight for gardeners all around the world. They come in many varieties, but we love the different shades they offer within a single colour. Going from a deep red to a bright bubblegum-pink, these stunning blooms hold a singularly delicate form. The highly textured surface of the carafe, whose creation uses woven material and imprints from hand-stitched seams, is a beautiful contrast to the fine and delicate tendrils of greenery that peel away from the stem, and the smoky colour recalls the deeper pinks and the claret of the peony.
"Here are sweet peas, on tip-toe for a flight: With wings of gentle flush o’er delicate white, And taper fingers catching at all things, To bind them all about with tiny rings."
