In 1923, Scottish designer, Charles Rennie Mackintosh relocated with his wife, Margaret MacDonald, to Port-Vendres in southern France where he decided to focus on his watercolour paintings. Within their rose gardens, Margaret’s passion for decorative floral motifs and Mackintosh’s strong right angles merged to perfection with the birth of his Rose and Teardrop watercolour in 1915. An intimacy of their masculine and feminine attributes combined through the form of a rose.
Rachel has taken their art to a new and exciting level by partitioning clusters of roses at the base and upper ridge of each candlestick as rose petals fall like teardrops down the stem in Mackintosh’s blue, maroon and black colourway. With the design tubelined in black, a fruitful male/female polarity is established throughout the design. The Mackintosh’s were artist-lovers within a high spiritual plane, and the story of their love is recounted in what ebbed and flowed between them. Rachel has proved that this can be true of all of us. Undoubtedly, this design pushes the frontiers of the gates opened by the Mackintosh’s and is an outstanding example of intelligent design.
