We Artfully Repurpose Wine Bottles into Beautiful, Useful, and Unique Items!
Our mission is to have fun recycling and to create surprisingly beautiful and practical items for home and garden from discarded wine and liquor bottles that are hand cut, hand painted, crushed into frit, kiln fired and combined with copper and wood. Each artful design takes life from the many glass colors and shapes of recycled bottles that are gathered locally. Each represents a passion to create something beautiful while enjoying the fun of recycling. Visit our Gallery to see what we've been up to!
We are the creator of the Memory Wine Bottle Light. Your special photo can become a treasured keepsake. Contact us to create your treasured hand painted bottle light.
Gathering grateful bottle donations from friends and a few restaurants, each bottle is cleaned, and prepared for use. Based on the end design, the bottle is drilled with a hole, cut, melted, or transformed into glass frit for fusing and resin/glass painting. Wire wrapping is done by hand and we use the highest quality copper wire, galvanized wire, jewelry wire and alloy wire. Our materials list also includes stained glass, scrap glass, float glass, art resins, varnishes, inks, glass paints and special epoxies that are weather tested.
All hand painted designs are heat-cured and permanent. All of our items are handcrafted. We recommend cleaning with a damp cloth when necessary.
Bottle lights are drilled in the back and the hole is finished with a grommet. This allows for airflow and/or the lighting electrical cord. Mini light strings or battery powered LED's are used and if one or more bulbs go out, others stay lit.
