Lignereux is an art collective dedicated to creating extraordinary art objects. Pleasure-dome is one of 4 unique artworks produced by Lignereux for the Kubla Khan series. Based on the poem Kubla Khan, by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Pleasure-dome represents the 'domes in air' and 'caves of ice' referred to in the initial lines 'In Xanadu did Kubla Khan a stately pleasure-dome decree'. The ceramics are all made from parian, known for its translucency and the ice-like appearance of the fired clay body.
