THE ROMANESCO VASES

Inspired by early eighteenth-century Wedgwood earthenware fruit and vegetable forms, Romanesco cauliflower, and the Fibonacci Sequence, Eden’s Romanesco Vases are situated at the intersection of art and mathematics.

The florets of the Romanesco cauliflower are arranged in an ever-expanding spiral formation, which conforms to the Fibonacci Sequence, a mathematical system in which each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers. This formation can be seen in nature through the growth patterns of many plants.

These vases are reminiscent of the Worcester Cauliflower Tureen found in Cheekwood’s Silver and Ceramics Gallery.
