Hand Blown Glass Perfume Bottles ‘Sea Shore – Grey Skies Round’ by Thomas Petit
A striking example of the Hand Blown Glass Perfume Bottles ‘Sea Shore – Grey Skies’ by Thomas Petit. Here we see shades of aquamarine blue, subtle sea green and white glass overlapping to create an abstract land and seascape. The “waves” swirl and undulate around the curved bottle which finishes with a dramatic black neck – perhaps depicting an approaching storm.
Thomas expertly captures the dramatic atmosphere of the coastline. These truly stunning Hand Blown Glass Perfume Bottles will add drama and elegance to your dressing table or any other display.
Hand Blown Glass Perfume Bottles Artist
Thomas Petit started out in the world of clay, before entering the field of glass art. At first unwilling to expand his knowledge, he then remembers a visit to a Dartington Crystal Factory to watch glassblowing as a child. This memory jolted his desire to broaden his horizons, and Thomas embarked on a glass blowing course in Cornwall. Financial difficulty meant he was able to accept a three year apprenticeship, and Petit eventually took up a voluntary position at The Glasshouse in Covent Garden. After various jobs and time spent in New Zealand. Thomas settled in Derbyshire, on the edge of the Peak District.
Feeling the stress of working a full time job in 2015, and juggling it with his glassmaking meant Thomas was to make an important decision. By 2016, Thomas was concentrating solely on his glassblowing. Inspiration for his works comes from both everyday objects and experiences as well as from art and his own photography. Many of his best works have actually been happy accidents, he confesses. One of his latest ranges that continues to evolve his the ‘Sea Shore,’ inspiration coming from his childhood trips to East Sussex. All his pieces in this range are ground by hand, and sheen is restored by buffing when necessary after sandblasting.
