The idea of the houses started about 24 years ago as a way to store elemental properties as an apothecary would store different medicinal ingredients, in a way that is mystical/spiritual, symbolic and decorative. 13 years ago the idea grew to include preservation methods and permanent seals. Each bottle's "residents" are either preserved in epoxy or oil. Each Bottle sits atop a 120v LED puck style light offering full illumination of contents, as well as providing a soft, charming glow to where ever they are displayed. (1 light included with bottle, custom stands only by special request - for an additional charge).
The choosing of what elements are used are deeply personal, so their meanings are fluid. Special orders are welcome and encouraged. bottles and pricing vary.
