This keepsake was produced as part of the EKWC project entitled Dutch Souvenirs. Bloom is designed and manufactured with the help of a computer. The design is inspired by the colour, texture and shape of various flowers. Bloom is made of porcelain and filled with a traditional Dutch liqueur named Forget-Me-Not. The liqueur was first distilled in 1782 by A. van Wees Distillery De Ooievaar in Amsterdam. When empty, Bloom double as a vase.
In 2012 the vase was included as Flower Vase in the collection of Colour Porcelain for 1616 / arita japan.
