Flower Of Life Mini Bowl
Upcycled Sculptural Mini Bowl

Each one has a unique base that is hand chipped to be one of a kind. Will add the perfect touch to your table spreads and vibe.
Our upcycling process - First step is to sort, clean and delable the bottles. Then we score and hot pop the tops off (this means we cut the glass by making a score mark on the surface. Then add a flame to the score mark and voila, it hot pops off). Next, we polish the rough popped lip to smooth out all the unevenness. This prepares the glass to use a torch to fire polish the lip so that we achieve a nice rounded glossy finish. Our last step is to anneal the glass in a glass kiln.
We make these holders with a fire polished GT kombucha bottle top, and a piece of vintage glass tile. The two pieces are glued together with a conservatory epoxy that creates a glass to glass bond, it is as strong as glass.
By upcycling the glass bottles we are giving a second life to mass produced product packaging. This insures the glass is kept out of the landfill and moving forward to live a long and happy upcycled life. Each product we make and sell saves one bottle from the Santa Fe landfill.
Cheers to helping us help the environment, and for supporting us on our journey of creating sustainable and professionally crafted handmade glass art.
