Violet glass & Brass
#1 12 x 7 cm - #2 30 x 11 cm
This series of work was created in the context of 'Toegepast 16', a design competition for young talent organized by 'Cultuurplatform Design'. The archetypical pharmacy bottle was the starting point for this project. In contemporary, industrial and identical manufactured pharmacy bottles interventions were made and other materials were joined, both manual and industrial, to create jewellery and objects that attain a more human touch. Hereby, individual and simultaneous uniform pieces arose with the aid of a mass-produced item. Every violet glass pharmacy bottle was cut by hand and tranformed into a new object, pendant or bracelet, taking into account the form and function of the original artefact.
