A ceramic lemon, true to the size and shape of this species, made of Cornish stoneware clay by OC/BC Arts.

The citrus collection for Unpolished was inspired by a desire to follow in the footsteps of the 17th Century Botanical Johann Christoph Volkamer, whose botanical engravings documented the rarest and most bizarre citrus fruits at a time when a competitive craze for collecting them had developed amongst the aristocracy, believing that ‘the golden apples of the Hesperides' in Greek mythology were in fact citrus fruit. The collection displays a handful of citrus varieties seen by the artist while traveling in Europe, all of which are true to size and shape.

Dimensions : 10 cm long x 8 cm wide
