Drawing inspiration from her love of flora and fauna, an interest in mythology and things just a little on the dark
side Jillian has created a collection of bottles with a twist.
Jillian takes old poison and scientific bottles and slip casts them in parian or porcelain clay.
Some may be decorated with oxides, waxes and her own pencil and pen & ink illustrations of bugs, birds and poisonous plants.
Some will become more sculptural. Using reclaimed woods Jillian will turn stoppers to support individually sculpted porcelain birds. Using a mixture of her own silver work and ‘lost and unloved’ items she will decorate each bottle to fit the character of the bird.
By the nature of the way Jillian creates the bottles your piece will be unique which is what we love about Jillian’s work here at Heart Gallery.
