Inspiration

This series of bottles are inspired by the true story of Gertrude Kiwi, a young Jewish girl brought to England from Germany during World War II: “We arrived in Harwich with the boat and got out. And just outside there was a small shop that sold chocolates with a small placard in the window that said ‘Gift Shop’. And I got very scared - ‘Gift’ in German means ‘poison’. I thought Oh my God they are going to poison us after all! ‘Gift’ became the very first word I learnt in English.”
