Water-shaped Bottles






The water-shaped bottle by Xiaoli Wen. He has created a series of porcelain bottles shaped by a waterfall. He made silicone rubber moulds of discarded plastic and glass bottles, the moulds were filled with plaster and cured while hanging under flowing water. A small number of bottles were selected which people casually discarded into rivers – bottles of mineral water, Coca-Cola, beer, whisky and gin

Here are words from the designer: “Water does not have its own shape. It is shaped by its container. Now water wants to change the container’s shape therefore to decide its shape by itself. It is a philosophical thinking about active or passive, change or be changed.” Via Dezeen and MarteLouise.
