Teddy Porcelain Bottle Vase #101 Powder Pink
12,8 × 6,7 × 3,8 cm €44,00
Limited Edition of 200 pieces – Hand numbered
During a beach clean-up in Italy, Foekje stumbled upon this little bear, who looks a lot like Robijntje. Once his little body was filled with liquid washing detergent or fabric softener and his place was on top of a washing machine.
But now he washed up ashore and never told us how he ended up there, we expect it was a long journey.
By creating durable porcelain copies of the material she finds, Foekje Fleur is spreading awareness of this growing problem.
The outside of the stained porcelain is biscuit which gives a mat finish similar to plastic.
The inside of the bottle is glazed to make it waterproof and suitable as a vase or container.
This vase is hand made in Aveiro, Portugal.
The plastic bottles are used to create moulds. Pigmented liquid porcelain is poured into the moulds, leaving a thin layer that forms the shape.
All this handwork is done by a team of seven craftsmen, therefore none of the bottles is exactly the same.
For this edition Elzeline Kooy designed a box with a lively deep sea scene.
