Do you have a memorable bottle with an etched-in design that you'd like to turn into a piece of usable art?
It doesn't have to be a wine bottle; fancy liquor, beer or water bottles work as well.
Ship the glass bottle to our studio (we will send you our address after we've received your order) and choose the style you'd like (mention it in the comment field at checkout).
A few things for you to consider before placing your order:
- We have to remove all paper labels and metal/plastic parts before moving the bottle into the kiln.
- Most engravings or special print are preserved. If we suspect otherwise, we will let you know upfront.
- While melting and flattening, glass can fold unevenly. This happens more often with rectangular bottles, resulting in a not so perfect slump.
- Round bottles sometimes roll in the kiln. While this doesn't happen often, it may result in a de-centered design or engraving.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask - we are happy to help!
Gisela was great to deal with and was prompt in sending through updates - the two bottle platters turned out even better than I had imagined - 6 stars !!!
Gisela was really friendly and took extra care with my order. She was very creative and came up with very good suggestions. I really love the end product, especially when it is a bottle from my wedding some 26 years ago. My husband loved it too.
