Vasen von Foekje Fleur
Plastikmüll aus dem Fluss Maas ihrer Heimatstadt Rotterdam inspirierte Foekje Fleur zu diesem Vasenprojekt. Die Formen sind teilweise aus den 60er Jahren! Die Porzellan Vasen werden bei 1300 C gebrannt, sind Innen lasiert und Außen mattes Pastell, wie verblasstes Plastik. Nicht nur schön, sondern auch ein Statement zur Unvergänglichkeit von Plastikmüll.
Foekje Fleur fished plastic garbage out of the Maas river in Rotterdam as inspiration for these porcelain vases – some of the designs are as old as the 60s. The insides are painted smooth and the outsides matte, like rotting plastic. A beautiful statement about waste.
The outside of the stained porcelain is biscuit which gives a mat finish similar to plastic. The inside of the porcelain bottle vase is glazed to make it waterproof and suitable as a vase or container.
This vase is hand made in 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. After drying, the inside of the bottle is glazed lead-free and fired at 1300 ºC. All this handwork is done by a team of seven craftsmen, therefore none of the bottles is exactly the same. The picture shown is an indication, minor colour changes are possible. Overall the surface is smooth but small defaults do occur and should be considered as a quality of the product.
Please follow these instructions to keep the outer surface of the bottle vase pristine state. After using the vase, wash the bottle with mild soap, warm water and a brush. Leave it to dry on a clean towel. Grease stains can be removed by rubbing in soft soap, leaving it overnight and cleaning as directed above. Always keep this bottle indoors and store in a dry place as moist dirt might get into the outer surface over time. Liquids can also be stored in the bottle vase; we suggest using a cork to close the bottle.
The porcelain bottle vase #4 measures 22,5X9X5cm.
