Tony Trivett hand blown glass perfume bottles

Tony Trivett

Glass

Exquisite, collectable, handmade lamp-work scent bottles by Tasmanian glass artist Tony Trivett.  Each bottle is a one-off, stamped ‘T’’ by the artist.

Since the ancient Egyptians, glass bottles have been used to store all manner of exotic balms and potions.  The more volatile and valuable required glass-stoppers, just like the perfume bottles of today.  Tony creates the most stunning scent bottles.  Unlike machine-made, mass produced bottles made for popular perfume brands; Tony’s bottles are individually crafted and although a very safe way to store perfume, are largely sought after for their decorative attributes.

Tony Trivett is a master of his craft, skilfully manipulating borosilicate tubing and rods by hand over a flame, bringing to life each bottle and stopper.  Beautiful markings and patterns are created by the application of coloured oxides; bases of the stoppers and throats of bottles are each ground to fit snugly, ensuring no evaporation of any precious scent stored.
