With several liquor stores in the area, I noticed a large assortment of glass bottles in my neighborhood. I began collecting them- most are not particularly aesthetically pleasing and get recycled. Some, however, call to me to become something more. These bottles get sterilized in a vinegar bath and stripped of any glue and labels. They are then washed, rinsed, and dried.
Then the fun begins as I see what the wire wants to do.
While not particularly unusual to find this particular type of bottle, the shape feels pleasant in the hand and I often find myself keeping them more than recycling them. The cap being complete is unusual and drew me to decorate it with matching wire. The effect, I feel, is quite striking!
This should be a usable object beyond its beauty, since the cap should hold liquid as originally intended. A fine addition to any Steampunker!
