Heidi Warr Charger

Heidi Warr "Flight of the Bombus" Charger. A stunning Geometric Escher inspired 16" charger in an edition of 5.

Artist's statement:

Flight of the Bombus
The Flight of the Bombus (Latin name for bumblebees) design is inspired by nature. I have created stylised bumblebees emerging from the centre of a geometric world.
Bumblebees are intriguing to watch, busily going about their business with a sense of commitment and purpose as they pursue their goals. I was inspired to capture the world of the humble bumblebee.
For the Flight of the Bombus design I drew inspiration from the works of Mc Escher. Many of his black and white creations involve a stunning level of geometric detail and convey a wonderful sense of movement. Those were aspects I sought to capture in my design; detail and movement.
The Flight of the Bombus design is based on geometric spirals emanating from the centre of my hand thrown charger. Each flowing spiral represents the life cycle of the bumblebees as they busily track back and forth from their hive. It is incredible to see how committed they are as they work together for the common good.
When creating the Flight of the Bombus design I utilised segmented sections alternating in contrast within the flowing spirals to convey a wonderful sense of movement within the piece.
The Flight of the Bombus design is available on a 16” charger (approximately) and the design is limited to 5.
