Of laboratories, potion bottles and the aesthetic of collections of glass bottles stoppered with cork.

Erlenmeyer Flasks with dry ice and colored water. I love chemistry laboratories. It's the look really, all the scientific complexity and carefulness, the controlled chaos. Flasks, vials and measuring instruments sitting in such a cleanly cluttered environment. I know its what you do with them that one should respect, but one cannot help but enjoy the aesthetic of a labratory.

Potions. Oh what a beautiful sight, hundreds of bottles carefully labeled, all topped with cork stoppers. I would love to have a wall filled with oil and herb bottles for every whim. but for now the small herb cabinet handed down from my grandmother will have to do.
