New Life for an Old Wine Bottle

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 4 January 2018 in Abstract & Conceptual.

It has been really cold outside so I have not been out to take many pictures. This is a wine bottle. I placed it on a mold that had a textured design and then melted it in the kiln. Now it is flat and can be used for a small plate. A good use for old wine bottles!

@Gérard: It was empty! This always makes a good reason to buy wine!

an imaginative way to pass some "mandatory" indoor time. And better yet, it resulted in a pretty cool photo. I have been trying to process my family Christmas photos, then do some organization and backup. Not as much fun as you are having.

You have a kiln? Do you do ceramics? I had access to one at school when I was a high school art teacher, but no more. Creative use of the wine bottle.
