Test 2

This one came out better - fewer bubbles, so it's a slow rampup that it needs. I'll try another before I use the bottle I want to use for the school. I'm going to go with no copper hanger. I think I'll like that better, too. Sorry if the photo is bad, there are just too many things on my list right now! When I do the final version, I'll post a pretty picture!

Ok, I have to ask the dumb question. Why would you "slump" a wine bottle? What does that mean? What do you do with the now flat bottle? Please enlighten the clueless one.......thank you!

Slumping is the technical term for the process I use to melt the wine bottle in the kiln. I am making a cheese tray out of it for my son's school fund raiser. This is the same thing I made the canape set for. It's supposed to be a matching set. It's just a small cheese tray, but it's a novelty thing and something I can make myself instead of buying one, and recycling a glass bottle in the process!

Oh yes, this is coming along nicely. Not only do you get to make it, recycle it, you get to drink it too. Is that last nites chard?

This is so fascinating and feels a bit daring all at the same time. You are one clever gal. I love it!

NO! I can't drink that much in one night. Well, maybe I can, but I don't!!!! It's an older bottle, I've been saving some for a while.

Thank you Sue. Sounds like a very smart project and a good way to recycle glass. I've seen beads from recycled glass, but never anything big.....Can't wait to see the finished tray.
