Chemistry bottle vase for flowers, cuttings and home decor White handmade ceramic vase with landscape painted glazes around the outside.

This handmade ceramic bottle vase is cast from a vintage pharmaceutical bottle. The apothecary 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.

The shiny glazes contrast with the raw, unglazed matte ceramic making it very tactile. Use with flowers, foliage cuttings, leaves and stalks, it is versatile as a vase or a homely ornament.

Each vase is slip cast and finished all by hand. It is left to dry out and then fired to high a kiln temperature. This ensures that it is dishwasher, microwave and frost proof. All glazes are lead free. Each vase is signed and completely individual.

Please note that the vases are made by hand and glazes are individually painted onto each one. Yours won't look exactly like the ones pictured, and they will be just as lovely and unique.
