Each of these resin pots by London-based New Zealand designer Phil Cuttance is embellished with a unique iridescent sheen on its lid.
Phil Cuttance hand-cast each simple Aurora Pot with a rounded bottom and flat lid from a water-based resin.
He submerged the lid under water and drops a small amount of polish onto the surface to form an oily slick. He then lifted the lid up, catching the colourful pattern on its top.
"I have always liked the visual effect of oil or polish slicks on water," Cuttance told Dezeen. "I wanted to simply find a way to transfer a polish slick from the water's surface and preserve it on an object."
The slick created by the polish is different each time, so every pot in the set is one of a kind.
