Pastels That Are A True Work Of Art, Themselves!
Unison Colour is based in the Northumberland National Park in England. The business began in the early 1980s, when artist John Hersey found that mass produced factory made pastels simply did not offer the qualities he was looking for. Despite manufacturing over half a million individual sticks a year the pastels are still completely handmade and retain all the qualities of the originals. They are mixed to John’s meticulous recipes and are based on traditional pigments such as cadmiums, cobalts and natural and synthetic earths. The difference in the manufacturing process, hand rolling rather than extrusion, gives Unison Colour Soft Pastels a unique texture, delivering a consistency of response across the colour spectrum that is unmatched and that is loved by artists.
