3 x bottle vases – Chemistry bottle, Poison bottle and Milk bottle. A lovely table center decoration, or mantle piece. Bottles are stoneware high fired to 1240 degrees which gives ceramic a nice ‘ring’.
Ceramic bud vases have a shiny and satin white glaze with a dreamy landscape horizon. The glazes contrast with the raw, unglazed matte stoneware making ithem very tactile. Use with flowers, foliage cuttings, leaves and stalks, it is versatile as a vase or a homely ornament.

Landscape bottle vases are cast from a collection of various original 20th Century bottles. The 20th century was awash with over production and materialistic culture. Bottles and objects were cast adrift from their different eras, reused and re sold before ending up in over spills such as antique auctions or charity shop shelves, awash with other random objects. This collection is an attempt to unify disparate objects from distant styles. It is also inspired by the embossed landscapes on plastic water bottles that attempt to depict the vast and pure origins of mountain waters, yet in plastic bottles which are so contrary to that image.
