We at Water Gallery are so proud and excited to announce the arrival of the prototypes of our spectacular new glass water bottles featuring the art of marine life artist Guy Harvey, surf lifestyle artist Drew Brophy, a gorgeous photograph of real-life Mermaid Kariel, and two more beautiful Wyland images. For a small, growing company like Water Gallery, waiting for prototypes is always a stressful, nail-biting period. We cross our fingers and hope the test-run of the bottles comes out as we imagine. This time, there's absolutely no question: they're MORE beautiful than we could have imagined!
To see the latest editions of our Water Gallery line-up brings us immeasurable joy. All the vibrant colors, dynamic images, richly detailed ocean scenes...these bottles are truly magical, if we do say so ourselves. Notice that there are some exciting new elements to these new bottles-- at the bottom of each bottle, right below the gorgeous 22-karat gold frames, are the individual signatures of each artist with their own specific flourishes and styles.
Also, once you see the bottles in person and turn them around, you'll notice that we've fine-tuned the back decals of each bottle, adding images created by each artist to the text portion of the decal. Each bottle has a different description and different images on the back, each in a different font-- a really cool surprise on each individual bottle. Each artist has added his or her own special touch, making each edition of Water Gallery bottles unique and distinctive.
We are thrilled to introduce each new artist-- Guy Harvey and his incredible replications of striking sea creatures (read more about Guy Harvey here); Drew Brophy and his ultra cool interpretations of both sacred geometry and beach scenes (read more about Drew Brophy here and here); Mermaid Kariel's graceful elegance as she glides through the crisp ocean waters (read more about the world's fascination with mermaids here); and of course our beloved Wyland (read more about Wyland here), our very first Water Gallery artist, whose two new bottle images Shark Reef and Mermaid and Turtle are sure to steal your hearts.
All of our bottles have the magical effect of showcasing art THROUGH WATER, which makes the art appear to almost be suspended in the water, with a three-dimensional effect, like a mini-aquarium. These new bottles bring "art through water" to a whole new level. And once you put the bottles on a light base, you'll be absolutely blown away.
We know many of you have been patiently awaiting these new bottles. It's been a long process, but we have no doubt you'll feel it's been worth the wait. We will start the pre-sale process within the next two weeks and the bottles themselves should be ready for shipping sometime in January 2016. We promise to keep everyone posted-- stay tuned!
