Tap Water Carafe

Dutch tap water is top-quality drinking water, and it is 2000 times cheaper than bottled water. More importantly, it does not require any polluting plastic bottles or transport. With her traditionally crafted Tap Water Carafe Lotte de Raadt wants to promote the consumption of tap water. The shape of her carafes betrays the origins of the water. The tall bottle with the long neck refers to water from deep below the ground; the squat, 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!
