    What lovely images! Perfume bottles can be so pretty. I have a whole book full of perfume bottle photos, they can be great design inspiration 🙂

    oh thanks ladies. Katie, what’s that book called. I’d love to see it!?

    It’s called Perfume Bottles by Judith Miller, published by DK. It chronicles pre-20th century to present perfume bottles & really has some great images in it.

    Yes! I think you will really like it. The Lalique bottles starting on page 117 are some of my favorites!

    I LOVE these! Do you/will you have any for sale? I’m not seeing any in the shop at the moment…but perhaps I’m not using the right link?

    My name is Shelley Minney and currently I am undertaking Year 12 Design at St Peters Girls School in Australia. For my Visual Study assignment I have decided to study Rendering and have decided to use perfume bottles as my subject. I came across your work on your site and was inspired. I am really fascinated with these pieces of the perfume bottles. For a part of my assignment I have chosen to critically analyse these pieces and was wondering if you could give me an insight of title and date of the piece, the process you went through, the mediums used and the purpose of the rendering.
    Also, I would like to know how rendering relates to your career……….
    Yours sincerely
    Shelley Minney

    Hi Shelley,

    title and date of the piece is just “perfume bottles”.

    The process was ink outline and concentrate ink fills. The background is hand vegetable dyed.

    The purpose was to capture the essence of these objects as well as the feeling their contents evoke.

    How rendering relates to your career is, I portray objects and people with realistic line yet add expressive details to evoke and express emotion.
