Adam was human – this explains it all. He did not want the apple for
the apple’s sake: he wanted it only because it was forbidden.
So said Mark Twain, author and humorist. Thankfully, Bull & Stein’s
Fruits Céramique apples are far more accessible – in fact, their crisp
forms and brilliant colours are an invitation in to the illustrative
world of Brazilian artist Lisa Pappon.
Lisa’s apples are made with love and perfection, and reinterpret one of
the most symbolic fruits shared by global cultures. In the Bible, the
apple is the forbidden fruit found within the Garden of Eden. In
Arthurian and Celtic folklore, the apple tree is sacred and grows
bountifully on the island of Avalon without cultivation.
And so with these origins, Lisa Pappon’s ceramic apples speak to many,
while remaining iconic pieces of décor for your home. Handmade from
ceramic and finished with shimmering glaze, these apples have appeared
in galleries around the world, and can now be plucked from their Bull
& Stein tree to take home as a memorable piece of art.
