Handmade fragrances from Brooklyn, NY.

Brooklyn Glass is a publicly available studio run by Alan Iwamura and peeps in Park Slope. We had a pow-wow this week about doing another run of the original anatomical heart glass bottles. Alan suggested another method this time, in which we have a three piece 3D mold made consisting of the two halves of the heart, and the cavity which would hold the perfume. Then he would pour hot (liquid) glass into the mold, and once it cools, extract it. Amazing!

I just happened to drop in on Alan while he was making a special piece for Trust Art‘s Triennial Auction which takes place on Liberty Island June 15th. I’ll post the link here once tickets go on sale. The piece Alan is contributing to the auction is a version of the Humanity heart, with a neon pulse.
