A small-sized, two-part Engineer ampule from Ridley Scott’s 2012 mystery sci-fi prequel Prometheus.
Three different sizes of these memorable pieces were made and seen in the Ampule Chamber, with this piece the smallest of the three. ‘Raku’ pottery specialist Rob Sollis was recruited to craft the pivotal urns, which took interesting inspiration from delicate Roman glass. This particular version is created from hard biscuit foam with resin skin. Each ampule has alien text etched vertically into the gently curving body. Every unit has its own bespoke special metallic paint effect incorporating silver, gold, brass and even blue colours to achieve an ethereal presence. In addition to the special paint effect, each ampule was distressed to reflect its ancient heritage.
The ampule is in two pieces, with a lid and a base. Well-used on the production, the ampule displays some scuffs and scratches revealing the cream coloured resin beneath and a chip at the base of the lid. The lid does not sit flush on the base. However, the piece remains in good condition.
Materials: Biscuit Foam, Resin.
