Georgica x Carmen García Huerta
Tableware Georgica, exclusively designed by the illustrator Carmen García Huerta, part of the designer collaborators framework that La Cartuja de Sevilla launched in a new stage in their long trajectory of almost two centuries.
The creative was inspired by the traditional exotic motifs of the Seville firm. From its inception in 1841, La Cartuja included exotic scenes among its habitual decorations, echoing the British trend at the time. Among the classic motifs was the Willow which consisted in a pagoda, a bridge, some swallows and a natural surrounding presided by a weeping willow. These scenes shared the limelight with plant themes, leaves, flowers and intricate branches which were in the centre of the motif or shared space with these exotic scenes. To give them an even more evocative air, other exotic themes of oriental influence could be included.
