Sharon’s Black Bot­tle Art

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Sharon Wil­liams-Black has re­cently set her sights on the arts with a spe­cial fo­cus on help­ing the en­vi­ron­ment with the launch of her busi­ness Black Bot­tle Art. In an ef­fort to en­sure that less waste bot­tles reach our land­fill or end up washed up on any ran­dom beach on the is­land, Sharon has been re­cy­cling used wine and liquor glass bot­tles, lit­er­ally turn­ing trash into trea­sure.

Ear­lier this week she launched two new lines, adding to her re­cently-es­tab­lished small busi­ness: one col­lec­tion to hon­our love and lovers with a Valen­tines line of vases, and an­other to com­mem­o­rate Saint Lu­cia’s up­com­ing ob­ser­vance of its 37th an­niver­sary of In­de­pen­dence.

The Valen­tine col­lec­tion fea­tures three types of vase to dis­play the beau­ti­ful flow­ers that most women re­ceive on Valen­tine’s Day. For this col­lec­tion Sharon has teamed up with an­other lo­cal - a young Pas­try Chef, Talisa De­cem­bre - whose pas­tries and good­ies will be high­lighted in Black Bot­tle Art’s com­mem­o­ra­tion of Valen­tine’s Day.

What bet­ter way to show love than with De­cem­bre’s very own recipe pre­sented in noth­ing less than a fresh guava, scooped out to form a sump­tu­ous shell that is filled with guava cheese­cake? Or a strudel tart filled with lo­cal golden ap­ple that is now in sea­son?

The In­de­pen­dence line fea­tures the is­land’s na­tional colours and her in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the joy and pride felt by Saint Lu­cians in their is­land and its sovereignty. Sharon hopes that this line will be fea­tured at lo­cal busi­ness places, banks, govern­ment of­fices as well as in peo­ple’s homes as they demon­strate their na­tional pride that is height­ened around In­de­pen­dence Day.

You can see Black Bot­tle Art’s col­lec­tions of ob­jets d’art in the name of love and na­tional pride at an ex­hi­bi­tion to­day Satur­day, Jan­uary 30, 2016 up­stairs Il Pappa (Key Largo) in Rod­ney Bay from 10:00 a.m.
