Besides the ongoing collections of the Bottle Vase Project, we aim to launch two limited editions each year. Each edition comes in a special box, designed by a different artist.
During a beach clean-up near Bari, Italy, Foekje stumbled upon this little bear. Once his little body was filled with liquid washing detergent or fabric softener and his place was on top of a washing machine. But now he was filled with sea water and washed up ashore. He never told us how he ended up there but we expect it was a long journey.
Illustration by Elzeline Kooy
Elzeline Kooy is an illustrator based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Her work is playful and evolves a lot around color, with an eye for detail. In her work, she often references surrealism and comics. Flora and Fauna also play a big part, as well as architecture, tiling and bizarre swimming pools. She has a small obsession with bricks, basketballs and palmtrees. For special edition #101 Elzeline designed a box with a lively deep sea scene.
All pink bears are sold out, at the moment we only have ‘Post It’ available. We expect a the last few Mint and Lavender vases to arrive early march.
