'Blue' from the series 'Embossed'.
As the name implies, this design depicts the beautiful blue seas that surround our islands. The feeling evoked here is both nostalgic and bleak, as many remember a less polluted environment and richer marine life. Our surroundings should not become a memory etched on bottles. Let us protect our seas.
'Embossed' is inspired by a collection of Maltese bottles from the early 20th century and seeks to offer a glimpse of what may have been forgotten. The Maltese element drawn from the embossed designs on each bottle serves to capture a romanticised nostalgia by animating the Maltese context through simple, yet beautiful visuals.
