Boop Design is a small creative business making and selling beautiful handmade porcelain bottle vases. The themes and illustrative decoration applied to all products are created by Laura Pearcey and based on her childhood memories and of growing up in Somerset when her nickname was little boop hence the name of her business. Laura is still based in Somerset and lives on the stunning Somerset levels with her studio overlooking the river and orchard.
As a child Laura and her sister loved daisy chains and blowing dandelion clocks, singing songs from The Sound of Music, and nursery rhymes these are the themes that are prevalent in her illustrations. Using found vintage bottles as the base for the original moulds for slip casting, marries the whimsical feel of the illustrations and gives a clean lined, modern twist on a nostalgic theme.
She and her small team of highly skilled creatives handmake every piece by slip cast using porcelain in moulds made of old medicine bottles. These are then hand fettled, fired hand glazed fired again and then Laura's illustrations are applied via a ceramic transfer that is fired a third time onto that lovely glossy transparent glaze which allows the beautiful milky white of the the porcelain shine through, which compliments the charcoal grey illustrations to great effect.
