Oil Vinegar Bottles ready to hit the Dance Floor

Oh yes they are ready! I am thankful to the customer who put this idea in my head. She said, I have your butter dish, I have your salt pepper shakers, I have your mugs and bowls and I need some thing more for the kitchen.
I decided to make Oil/Vinegar bottles but wasn't sure what shape/design or how would I incorporate my style to them. Sometimes you just have to try out things to see how they transform.
I made a new die for my extruder and manipulated the clay as it came out. And just like that I knew where this was going.
I tapered the tops to give them a more elegant look and the decoration just empahized the curves and flow of the shape emulating the look of embroidered fabric wrapped around a body.



And I just couldn't decorate one side... they have a different pattern on both sides. The textured slip pattern also helps in getting a good grip on the bottle while cooking.

I like how they came out and would like to read your comments. Getting input on new work is really appreciated. Thanks

Charan, the new oil vinegar bottles are fabulous! For some reason I keep hearing the music from Fantasia with the dancing mushrooms. LOL

Cheers!

Hi,

I love your work - it's simple but very decorative! I know you say you are influenced by Indian design and colours but for some reason I also see Japanese patterned paper (Washi) influence too?!

Both colours and textures go really well.

Thank you all so much for your comments. Majority of my influence is from Indian patterns and designs, but I have realized that the same patterns are seen in different cultures such as African, Asian, Japanese, Russian and they mean different things in different cultures. Before humans wrote a language like English, drawing and patterns was their language to express themselves.

These are terrific! Great job I'm sure they will be a huge success.

Fantastic bottles Charan. Are the spouts cork or do you have to epoxy them on? I just love the way your work dances.
