Art is the Flower 18-inch prestige vase

Charles Rennie Mackintosh produced four posters during his lifetime, all in the mid-1890s. His watercolour ‘Autumn’ was transformed into a poster for the Scottish Musical Review, where his characteristic lettering appeared underneath his depiction of a single woman, her black hair billowing around her face, surrounded by white doves with pale pink stylised roses in their feathers.

Both Mackintosh’s design and colour palette inspired designer Nicola Slaney. Her Art Nouveau lady adorns a prestige vase, and appears more at peace than Mackintosh’s subject, who seems almost imprisoned by the birds and linework of the original design.

At the base of the vase, ART IS THE FLOWER LIFE IS THE GREEN LEAF is written in fine tubelining. This quote came from a lecture Mackintosh gave in 1902: “Art is the flower – Life is the green leaf. Let every artist strive to make his flower a beautiful living thing, something that will convince the world that there may be, there are, things more precious more beautiful – more lasting than life itself.”  Nicola has created a prestige vase in homage to Mackintosh’s sentiment – a vase that is precious, beautiful and lasting.
