Claus began working with Holmegaard in 2014, when he developed the classic, mouth-blown range of vases called Old English. The ambition was to create vases and flower bowls, based on the characteristic Holmegaard glass look, that are easy to decorate and that beautifully accentuate the flowers.
Old English is inspired by the English tradition for gardening, highlighted by beautiful bouquets and corollas floating in water. The fundamental design behind the range is a classic, goblet-shaped vase inspired by Claus Dalby’s own flower universe. The soft lines and curves from the vase are also recognised in the Old English range’s flower bowls, which are perfect for floating corollas, growing bulbs and flora blends.
