Porcelain Vase - Laundry Detergent Bottle

After seeing piles of plastic waste unearthed from the river Maas in her hometown of Rotterdam, artist Foekje Fleur decided to create durable and functional porcelain versions of everyday household items that are usually made in wasteful plastic. 

Every piece is handmade by a team of seven craftsmen, so no two will ever be exactly the same, but they are glazed on the inside making them waterproof, while the exterior of the stained porcelain is biscuit, giving them a matte finish similar to plastic.
