Here is another art inspiration from the movie" Practical Magic".
I call them Old Hag Weed Bottles, actually my hubby named them that which I thought was the most appropriate name to refer to them by. When Gillian was under jimmy's spell in "Practical Magic" she referred to her aunts as old hags and so the bottles got their name.But they are quite pretty for old hags, at least from the outside they look quite beautiful and on the inside, well lets just leave it at that!
Keeping the old hags in for eternity and casting good karma on the bewitched gals who keep them in their special conservatory or kitchen or wherever their place of magic may be, these bottles look magical in the natural sunlight but unfortunately we haven't had too much sun and the little we did have I was bed ridden in the past week. Hopefully I will get another opportunity to capture their magic in the coming week and then you will see another side of their beauty cast on the walls.
There is "Jet" with the gorgeous purple jewel and" Fran" with the circle of magical blue and white crystals and "Verbena" with a stunning amber gem.
I have taken a fond liking to creating these bottles but like all else I eventually tire and move on to something new, but for now I think I'm still amused by the whole process.
I used new bottles, vintage bottles, solder, patina,vintage gems and jewels.I still have more to photograph along with some of the Dioramas I have also made.
Hope you like them .
