Installation of 1000 Tear Bottles by
Deborah Tompsett, Artist and Ceramicist
There is an ancient tradition of ‘Tear Bottles’ ranging
from their use by the ancient Greeks to references
in the Bible. Tear-shaped vessels would be carried
by pilgrims as they journeyed and in the Victorian
era tear bottles surfaced again as a popular icon
of grief and grieving – during funerals for example,
mourners would capture their tears to assist their
mourning. Made in a traditional way on a potter’s
wheel, these tear bottles vary in size and each of the
thousand bottles has its own distinct individuality.
Free entry.
