‘Grace’ Vintage Perfume Bottles
‘Grace’ Vintage Perfume Bottles evoke bygone eras and halcyon days gone by. This masterfully cut item of art glass is 16cm tall and will look alluring on a French Dresser or Mantel.
Copper and Ruby colours are combined and the cut facets of the glass give these vintage perfume bottles a brilliant lustre.
Even more beautiful than the original antique perfume bottles.
Antique Perfume Bottles Artist
Michael Trimpol is our first American artist and Boha Glass is delighted to be able to bring his vintage perfume bottles here to the UK.
Michael was born and raised in Philadelphia and first learnt about glass working when he took a stained glass course in Vermont.
He started pursuing a career in stained glass and studied at the Concordia University in Montreal before becoming frustrated with the two dimensional nature of stained glass and moved into glassblowing, taking a course at Sheridan College School of Craft & Design in Mississauga, Ontario, where he graduated in 1985.
After graduation he took up residency at one of Toronto’s most popular tourist destinations; Harbourfront Craft Studios, before setting up his own company in 1989 Hot Glass Inc. He relocated to Stowe in Vermont to continue to develop his range of blown glass products, where he designs and produces a diverse array of art glass products.
He currently designs and manufactures a diverse body of product in addition to overseeing the operations of the studio.
“Of the many media and processes which can be used to create, I have always been attracted to glass and its potential. Initially working with stained glass, I became drawn to the dynamic nature of the blowing process which seemed to better suit both my nature and my vision.
I have a strong preference for objects of a personal scale and with potential utility. A vessel with a lid or stopper has always been of most interest. Colour and pattern are also important, either a single pure colour highlighting form or a more complex mixture to create patterns.
I am proud of the final product but the actual process of creation is what I find most satisfying.”
