DETAILS

The Fornasetti Atelier in Milan is an outpost of careful and accomplished craft production. Here skilled craftsmen and women use the same rigorous hand crafted techniques that were deployed in the very first Fornasetti designs. Colour is applied by hand and the original paper patterns are still meticulously followed. Maintaining the quality of this craftsmanship is an important aspect of the Fornasetti legacy. THE DESIGN: Ortensia takes inspiration from the hydrangea shrubs that grow in the Via Bazzini garden at the Fornasetti estate in Milan. On one side, the face is camouflaged in the Ortensia leaves. Benevolent? Malevolent? It reminds us of savages observing explorers in an exotic jungle. On the other side, the quintessential Fornasetti quirkiness resurfaces, the face is unnerved that a bee has landed on its nose. THE FRAGRANCE: FLORA is inspired partly by the lush flora that fills the gardens that envelope the Fornasetti house in Milan but also by the floral imagery created by Piero Fornasetti and taken from the vast archive. The image that adorns this first candle is the haunting face of operatic muse Lina Cavalieri in the guise of the mythical fertility goddess ‘Flora’; one of the most iconic designs from the ‘Tema e Variazioni’ collection. • 100% vegetable wax • 3.5” diameter x 6" high • Porcelain • Made in Italy Aprox. burning time 70hrs. aprox.
