The making of the perfumes bottle "The Physical ethereality of Fragrance"!

THE PHYSICAL ETHEREALITY OF FRAGRANCE

The Physical Ethereality of Fragrance bottle is inspired by the apothecary bottles in Damien Hirst's Pharmacy in 1992. I would like this bottle to have an ultra-minimal design, but also signify a sense of suspense and ineluctability, something that would recall H&D, but also be an original stand alone sculpture of mine. Being Venetian, I have some understanding of glass-blowing techniques, so I have sketched a sort of fusion between two traditional chemistry shapes; a flask and a test tube. Next, I added a hint of elegance and "ethereality" by suspending the tube and using a sparkling "blue stardust" colour in contrast with the clear glass of the flask. Lastly, I designed the cap, as a liquid drop, to aesthetically counterbalance the whole design.
