" Les soliflores vaisselle "
The " Soliflores vaisselle " are traditional dishwashing liquid bottles transformed into vases.
Washing-up liquid adverts always boast floral essences, so it was natural to associate one with the other.
Here, the miraculous cleaning powers of washing-up liquid are derided and associated with colours:
For example, the fuchsia vase is called “Raspberry vinegar, with natural extracts”.
Each glass vase is mouth-blown. They are therefore unique; a reflection of the flower they are destined to hold. The bottle cap is injected
with molten glass to create a precise replica of its plastic predecessor. When closed, the vase is a sculpture,
its shape and composition opposing standardisation and the disposable.
A traditional washing-up liquid bottle is produced industrially – it is disposable and filled with a viscous liquid and artificial odours. This icon of
consumption is the perfect starting point for transcending its ugliness and giving a real identity to a dull household item.
By breathing life into this object with an old knowledge and an artistic flair, its aesthetics are redefined with a humouristic touch.
Logically, industrial progress mechanises manual know-how. Here, however, the vases reverse this notion.
Bottles created by mass marketing are reborn from man' breath and hand. These industrial,
throw-away objects are reincarnated in an authentic form with an element of grandeur.
Their long, elegant forms resemble that of a human silhouette in motion.
These enchanted creatures look upon their plastic brothers, who, void of their perfumed lifeblood, have lost their existence.
