  • Capacity: 500 ml.
  • 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.
  • Compostable plastic-free packaging
  • Handmade in Chile

About The Persistence of Memory

The Persistence of Memory, (1931) is one of the most iconic and recognizable paintings of Surrealism. Frequently referenced in popular culture, the small canvas is sometimes known as “Melting Clocks”, “The Soft Watches” and “The Melting Watches”. The painting depicts a dream-world in which common objects are deformed and displayed in a bizarre and irrational way: watches, solid and hard objects appear to be inexplicably limp and melting in the desolate landscape. Dalí paints his fantastical vision in a meticulous and realistic manner: he effortlessly integrates the real and the imaginary in order “to systemize confusion and thus to help discredit completely the world of reality”.
