  • Each glass purchased generates employment, reuses bottles that would otherwise go to landfill, and contributes to good causes. Bottles are collected from the streets and sold to a recycling centre. The recycling centre sorts and washes the bottles. Each bottle is cut by hand. The edges are polished and melted to create a smooth safe finish. The glass has the design applied then heat is applied to seal the paint. The colour of the glass may vary slightly depending on the tone of the bottle.

  • Handmade in Chile

About The Great Wave Off Kanagawa

Possibly one of the most famous artworks in Japanese History, The Great Wave off Kanagawa is a woodblock print that was made by Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai, roughly in late 1831 during the Edo period of Japanese history. The print depicts three boats moving through a storm-tossed sea with a large wave forming a spiral in the centre and Mount Fuji visible in the background.

The print is Hokusai’s best-known work and the first in his series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji, in which the use of Prussian blue revolutionized Japanese prints. The composition of The Great Wave is a synthesis of traditional Japanese prints and Western perspective, and earned him immediate success in Japan and later in Europe, where it inspired the Impressionists.
