Recycled ideas…

Lanterns and a light catcher created from re-worked recycled wine and beer bottles.

The lanterns are not large and ideal for putting a tea light candle in. Their bases are bottle and jar bases.

Doesn’t glass play with light beautifully? These are not on Etsy yet but inquiries and commissions welcome.

The ex-bottles and jars are lovely to work with, they can be unpredictable as to how they break before putting them in the kiln to flatten them but the restricted size of the sheet of glass produced can sometimes suggest the product. The glass also varies in thickness across the sheet so that the light effects become more varied and tactile!
