Russel Wright Dinnerware Inspired by MANITOGA

Wright's Knowles Esquire line of dinnerware incorporated patterns drawn from sketches Wright made of Queen Anne's lace, seedpods, and grasses while exploring Manitoga's landscape.* 

Nature in Design presents examples of Russel Wright's nature-inspired dinnerware lines including Harker's White Clover, Grass and Queen Anne's Lace by Knowles Esquire, and Flair's Ming Lace. On display in the main House with tour reservation.

Reserve a Tour to view these elegant objects within the experimental home and visionary landscape that inspired their creation. Visit Manitoga's Tours Page for details.
