Kosmos (Cosmos flower) is a skillfully designed stencil-printed decoration of stripes completed with a coloured glazing. It was produced in two colors: greenish-brown and cobalt blue (very rare). The balanced shaped of this flower symbolises harmony and tranquility, which in reflected in the atmosphere of this design.

The pattern was made made using the air-brush stencil technique, which leaves the edges of the pattern beautifully soft and fuzzy. This technique has a strong vintage feel and was very popular in the 60s and 70s. The hand-painted stripes used as a finishing touch create a watercolour-like effect and bring variety to the colours and liveliness to the otherwise stable printed pattern. The hand-painting gives an authentic artisanal feel to this Nordic vintage series.

The colour of the glazing shifts in tone from paler to more deep tones. This change in colours gives the design a rustic feel.

A Jar with a lid can be used as a butter box, candy pot, as a can for tea leaves, or as vessel for marmalade.

This part of the series is much rarer than the others. Buy it while it is in stock as finding new stock will probably take a while!
