Unison Color 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.

John began an inquiry, to see whether, with the pigments available, he could construct some kind of mirror to the magic of color. Unison Color Soft Pastels are the result. Despite manufacturing over half a million individual sticks a year the pastels are still completely hand made 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 Color Soft Pastels a unique texture, delivering a consistency of response across the color spectrum that is unmatched and that is loved by artists.

Unison Handmade Pastels are available in a variety of special combination Unison Handmade Pastel Sets. Each Unison Handmade Pastel Set is packaged in a sturdy black cardboard box, with each pastel cradled and protected by foam. Unison Handmade Pastels measure approximately 2-1/8" long x 5/8". Sticks vary slightly due to the hand-making process.

Company Info

Unison Colour began in the early 1980’s when Artist John Hersey found that mass-produced, factory made pastels simply did not offer the qualities he was looking for. Manufactured pastels broke easily, were not consistent in texture and did not mirror his color vision, and so he decided to make his own.

For several years he worked on methods of production, color sequences and the texture of his pigment mixtures. In 1987 he decided to offer the results to fellow pastellists finding there was an immediate interest. Today Unison Colour hand make over a quarter of a million sticks a year.
