Dutch Sky Gold Broadloom by Edward van Vliet

repeat width x length 394 x 280 cm | 155.12″ x 110.24″

Delftware. Fine, flowing lines of cobalt blue on almost translucent white. Perhaps typically Dutch but heavily influenced by eastern craftsmanship and styles. Like the seventeenth century potters borrowed Asian techniques and attention to detail, these designs make use of Japanese graphic abstractions of cloudy skies. Rekindling the cultural exchange between far-away nations in new interpretations. Dutch Sky is available in three different colour schemes; Dutch Sky Blue, Dutch Sky Grey and Dutch Sky Gold”.
