Upcycled Bottle Glass Day
Bill is working hard today on our upcycled bottle glass prep. When he's done cleaning old wine and soda bottles, he cuts up strips and then pulls rods in a torch flame. We need the rods for the best outcome when making beads, shells and other sculptural elements. It's a long process compared to picking up a rod of regular art glass and off you go.. but there is something very satisfying about doing something eco-friendly. We are not digging giant holes in the earth and giving potentially discarded material a second life.
