TAP WATER CARAFE
Dutch tap water is top quality drinking water, and it is 2000 times cheaper than bottled water. And, more importantly, it does not require any polluting plastic bottles or transport. With her traditionally crafted Tap Water Carafe Lotte de Raadt intends to promote the consumption of tap water.
The shape of the carafes betrays the origins of the Dutch water. The tall bottle with the long neck refers to water from deep underground; the low, stout bottle is the ideal shape for collecting surface water; the third can be filled with dune water. The stopper clearly displays the place where the contents were drawn: from the tap, naturally!
The carafe is produced by Lotte herself in her ceramics workshop in Eindhoven. The carafe cools itself by the use of terracotta.
