Message in a Bottle

Jc1lrg

With his collection of Poet's Bottles, Jeff Crandall fuses his romantic poet side with his accomplished-glass artist ways for an upbeat collection of good advice and astute reminders.

This might look like an ironic toast to the stereotypical alcoholic-poet type, but Crandall offers a deeper meaning saying, "My 'Poet's Bottles' poke fun at marketing and warning labels, but their whimsy also resonates with core truths."

Crandall may have been inspired by the funny other-meaning he found on a label of Joy dish soap-- it reads "Keep Joy out of reach of children. If Joy gets in your eyes, rinse thoroughly with water"-- but he used his reaction to make serious statements in a joyful way.  Poet's Bottles are fun elixirs that add a bit of frivolity to everyday drudgery. 

A few of my favorites : 

YOUTH (Clear-aquamarine bottle)
CONTAINS BOUNDLESS ENERGY, WILD IDEAS, BEAUTY, INNOCENCE & JUST A HINT OF IMMORTALITY

SIN (Clear-white tall thin bottle)
CONTAINS INDULGENCE, WICKED PLEASURES, WILD ABANDON, AND 1/10  OF 1% GUILT

DREAMS (Cobalt blue bottle)
DRINK DEEPLY AND BELIEVE

These interesting art / conversation pieces are available for $64 each through Vetri Glass.
