FOEKJE FLEUR

Flesvazen

The Bottle Vase series (or Flesvazen, in Dutch) are inspired by plastic trash from the waters of Rotterdam, The Netherlands. After reading about the plastic soup - A area in the Pacific Ocean where all floating trash piles up - Foekje Fleur started to look into the water of her own hometown and collected plastic trash from the 1960’s until now, almost totally intact. This collection was copied into porcelain, a material that shares the lack of degradability and shows the problem even clearer.

The outside of the stained porcelain vases are bisque which gives a matt finish similar to plastic. The inside of the bottle is glazed to make it waterproof and suitable as a vase or container.

The series is currently being produced by Middle Kingdom in Jingdezhen, China. Middle Kingdom specializes in hand craft and the ancient Chinese technique of porcelain casting.
