Mycena Bottle. Handblown glass and carved scent bottle.
These bottles celebrate the sanctuary of the woods by looking as the conical cap of the genus mycena mushroom.
Catriona’s designs attempt to convey a strong sense of design and a distinctive style, whilst maintaining a minimal aesthetic. Cat is inspired by mycology, the sanctuary she finds walking in the woods and the textures of the natural materials around her,
Catriona would describer herself as a maker first - a skilled craftswoman. She likes the process of making, and has spent the last 20 years honing her techniques. Catriona’s work tends to concentrate on clean, feminine shapes with coloured glass applications, while using modern cut glass decoration to add texture.
