Anything that makes our kitchen feel like a wonderfully witchy apothecary is all right with us. Whether you use this perfectly imperfect hand-blown cork-topped bottle for infusing oils, decanting special vinegars, or for storing gold nuggets from '49 (as one of our favorite customers does), this bottle's hand-blown bubbles and air-tight cork stopper make it as lovely as it is functional. As with all good things, this is excellent for corralling so much more than spices, medicinals, and precious metals. Feathers, treasures, jewels, love letters destined to be thrown into the sea...ideal for any precious little thing you'd like to keep safe and visible. Sans cork it makes a sweet little bud vase in a pinch.
About the maker: Hand-blown in a second-generation woman-run furnace in a small town in Jalisco called Tonala, each piece is individually crafted by a team of three glass blowers working in an open air studio using only recycled glass stock. Picture bougainvillea hanging over the finishing kiln. These pieces are both elegant and bohemian, simple and classic, made to be used, and loved. While the handblown glass can handle the occasional all-night party in the dishwasher, we like to hand wash ours to be on the safe side.
