Violet Landscape Series Perfume
Art Glass Perfume Bottle
Created by Shawn Messenger
This perfume bottle is blown using glass powders and chips for the background. The flowers are glass murrini that are created by the artist. Each murrini is made from the cross section of a glass cane that has layers of color. After the millefiore is fused to the background, a layer of clear is added and the piece is blown into the final shape. The stopper is created by letting the hot glass drip from a metal punty rod. After it has cooled the stopper is ground to fit into the opening securely. The floral compositions shown will vary slightly due to the handmade nature of the murrinis.
