Bottles with Flower Stoppers by Karen Franzen
Karen Franzen is our feature artist for June in Peterborough.
Karen's inspiration comes from beautifully designed textiles, the sunny warm colours of the Mediterranean, and painters who celebrate colour - Paul Cezanne, Paul Klee, Hundertwasser, Georgia O'Keeffe and Fred Franzen (her dad) to name a few. Sunflowers are a recurring theme in her work. Their large yellow heads will turn to follow the light of the sun and having witnessed vast fields of them I am struck by their eerie beauty.
These cute bottles are beautifully handmade. They are pure happiness and are sure to bring you joy. You can take the flower stopper out, and use the bottle to hold real flowers.
