Perfume Glass Bottles ‘Sea Shore – Waves Round’ by Thomas Petit
Inspired by the undulating waves of the sea, these perfume glass bottles are visually arresting and beguiling. Sandblasting reveals the delicate strands of colour that swirl and interact beautifully around the bottle. A crystal clear teardrop shaped stopper, that fits perfectly in the neck of the bottle, is the final flourish on this splendid hand blown bottle. These ‘sea-shore -waves’ perfume glass bottles are all hand blown and signed by the artist. Each one is completely unique and stunning.
Perfume Glass 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. The 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.
