Plastic Bottle Flower
Each flower is individually handmade using three waste plastic drinks bottles.
Plastic bottle flowers are fantastic as a gift or to display around the home, not only do they reuse waste bottles, unlike normal flowers they do not require any watering and will never die!
The bottles are first sandblasted to turn the surface opaque/white. They are then dyed the bold vibrant colours. The bottles are then hand cut and sculpted into the beautiful flowers. Four different styles are available and six different colour combinations. Please select which style and colour you would like when ordering.
Each flower uses 2 colours and white, which part of the flower is which colour is decided by the designer. If you have specific request for this though then please write this in the Special Requests box.
The bottles can be dyed any colour so if you would like your flowers a colour we do not have online then please contact us and this can be made at no extra cost.
The flower stem is made from stainless steel giving it a lovely shiny metal look which makes a lovely contrast to the colourful plastic. It is just long enough to fit nicely in the average wine bottle, making a fantastic reused vase
Alternatively it can be placed in a plant pot with your ‘normal’ flowers or in a vase of your own.

Sarah Turner – Eco Art & DesignSarah Turner is an award winning eco artist & designer making beautiful products from waste materials. Specialising in making decorative lighting from waste plastic drinks bottles she reincarnates this waste material into a new life. All the bottles are collected locally from cafes and households. Each bottle is then cleaned and sandblasted to give the opaque look then hand cut and sculpted into decorative forms. The waste bottles are totally transformed and it’s almost impossible to tell what they originated from. Discarded plastic is such a huge environmental problem and only a small amount of plastic drinks bottle are recycled in the UK. So these lights aim to do something creative with them and overall save a few bottles from the landfill sites. Sarah’s designs prove that.... "just because a product is made from rubbish it doesn’t mean it needs to look like it does!" Sarah thrives on the challenge of creating a beautiful product from waste materials. She analyses the natural properties and features of the waste material and takes advantage of them using them in a new and different way.
