Hand Blown Glass Icicle Ornaments, Set of Six Upcycled from Recycled Wine, Beer and Soda Bottles
After recycling wine, liquor, soda and beer bottles, as well as the occasional piece of depression glass, I cut rings from them, melt the glass, and shape it by hand into icicles. The only tool I use other than a 2000 degree torch is a pair of pliers - no molds in my glass shop! - and then I pop them into the kiln for annealing which reduces stress in the glass and makes it more durable. Colors may vary from those shown, but each will be a different color. Sizes range from over 3" to over 6". I run a green shop, using recycled clean boxes, packaging peanuts, and bubble wrap whenever possible.
