This series has its origin in Florence, from the architecture and the interior of the first exhibition of Markku Piri in the Palazzo Medici Riccardi, among others from the Michelangelesque staircase in the Palazzo. Here, the artist wanted to create respectfully, but also with a little smile, objects which are timelessly archaic in their forms, and lush in their decor. The ancient glass tradition and the artistic ideas of the present times greet each other in a grand manner.

A Bottle of the Potion of Devotion is a kind of a miracle: It has three layers of different coloured glass, and the surface treatment, the satiated surface, and the etched cuts reveal alternatingly all the colours. Depending on the source and angle of light, the bottle appears frosted and grey, or glowing and purple. The slightly irregular, yet controlled shape is a joy, showing the great skills of the Glass Blowers at Lasismi Group.
