This vase is cast from a vintage apothecary bottle. The ceramic bottle has a shiny white translucent glaze with a dreamy landscape painting. The glaze contrasts with the unglazed matte surface making it subtle yet tactile. Use with flowers, foliage cuttings, leaves and stalks, as a vase or a homely ornament.
Ceramic vases are left to dry slowly and fired to high a kiln temperature. This ensures that all ceramics and pottery are dishwasher, microwave and frost proof, although they will keep their shine better if washed by hand. All glazes are lead free. Each vase is signed and completely individual.
Please note that the vases are hand glazed and individually painted onto each one. Yours won’t look exactly like the ones pictured, and they will be lovely and unique.

This handmade ceramic bottle vase is cast from a vintage science bottle. The bottle is part of a larger collection of bottles that are a study of glass bottle design over the centuries. How do they look together? Bottles from completely different times in history were collected and plaster cast into moulds to make ceramic bottles. Bottles sit together as a collection, despite having different origins and functions, like objects in a charity shop or auction house. Our culture is full of disparate objects. The landscape glaze painting is inspired by the mountain scene pure water source depicted on the modern Volvic bottle, which is so at odds with the plastic it is moulded from. The collection of bottle vases is about our perception of design, style, function and history.
