Product Story

True Colours is a new series of vases by Lex Pott for &tradition. Each of the seven vases is made from a different oxidised metal; copper, steel, brass, and aluminium, while featuring a contrasting and highly polished segment. The subtle chromatic result shows the true colours of each metal, both in its polished and oxidised state. In addition to revealing the rich palette of each metal, True Colours also plays on the contrast between the rough, organic facture of the oxidised patina and the lustrous surface of the polished segment.“Since the reaction of the patina is organic,” says designer Lex Pott, “every vase is unique but remains reproducible.”
