Purple Perfume Bottles ‘Hyacinth’ by Kalki Mansel
In keeping with the nature theme of his hand made scent bottle collection, the Hyacinth purple perfume bottles take their colouring from the flower of the same name. The layers of this hand made scent bottle represent the delicate petals of the hyacinth flower, the smoothness of the sandblasted bottle being akin to the silky touch of the petals of the hyacinth flower.
Kalki shows his incredible relationship with nature and his ability to express his work through colours with this hand-made scent bottle. The clear stopper of the glass scent bottle means that all focus is on the body of the vessel and its intricate pattern and design. For lovers of flowers and anything purple, choose Hyacinth purple perfume bottles.

Kalki’s relationship with glass started at the tender age of 13 when he came across a glass art studio in Northern Ireland. Moving from the South with his family, he would spend as much time as possible hanging out at the Glass Studio he had stumbled across. Kalki finished his secondary school education, spending as much as possible of his spare time at the studio. America was his destination on completing school, and here he would learn more about his passion by visiting several studios and getting to know their individual artists.
On return from America, Kalki enrolled at Sunderland University to study for a BA honours degree in Glass, Architectural Glass, and Ceramics. His passion for glass had become intensified during his time in America, and in 2007 he graduated from Sunderland. 2008 took Kalki to Australia, and on his return, he was to start working for the Jane Charles Studio of Glass in Sunderland as well as the National Glass Centre.
Today, Kalki continues to work in Sunderland, for both studios, and as a glass blower and practising glass artist. Kalki’s works such as his series of purple perfume bottles are inspired by many fields including science, the natural world, colour, and culture. Molten glass is the perfect material for expressing and capturing his inspirations, Kalki loving to share his fascination with glass with others through his works.
