Small Purple Glass Perfume Bottle, by Sanders and Wallace
SKU SW 275
Small amethyst colour glass hand blown perfume bottle. 11 cm high.
Andrew Sanders and David Wallace trained in Design in North Staffordshire and found they had a shared interest in contemporary glass, and a passion for blown glass. The technique for taking a piece of molten glass and blowing it into a bubble from which a vessel could be made was discovered in Syria about 50BC. The techniques used today have changed little over the centuries, with the same simple tools being used to shape the glass and apply decoration. Andrew and David design their ranges of work both individually and in close collaboration, and every piece is hand made from start to finish.
