Kink Oil: by Deb Jones, The Jam Factory Adelaide.

The KINK oil bottle is made using traditional glass blowing techniques. Working together as a synchronised team, glassblowers gather molten glass from the furnace on the end of a steel blow-pipe. The form is blown to the desired size using calipers to measure the length and width. The bottle is then transferred or ‘puntied’ to another steel rod to enable the lip of the bottle to be finished. Finally, the neck of the bottle is gently heated with a torch while constantly rotating – the kink is formed by gravity when the rotation stops. The design and production process ensures that each piece is unique. The simple kink in the neck emphasises the function of the bottle as well as the material qualities of hand-blown glass – it also adds a sense of delight to the ergonomics of pouring. KINK is a useful object with a bold sculptural presence, available in lime, olive, and clear.
