George J. Sowden, Rockley Vases, Driade Editions

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


We all know the work of George Sowden since the first radical lamps of the 1970s. His work was then unanimously recognized in the 1980s when he was part of the Memphis Group. Since the 1990s, George Sowden has devoted a great deal of time to Industrial Design. The Rockley series vases are one of the few projects outside this activity. The particularity of the vases is their very strong and sculptural appearance playing with light and shadows. We own the entire series which has five vases. White glazed ceramic.
