“Is the glass half full, or half empty? It depends on whether you’re pouring, or drinking.” – Bill Cosby.
Well anyway here are some pictures of Wine Bottle Stoppers that I made recently. I am currently putting making 100 wine bottle stoppers for a customer in Miami, Florida – I do love a good sized order! Yay.
I wonder which ones of these are your favourites….I like the ones that have the most complicated designs which I make by melting lots and lots of glass pieces together and then cutting them down and then putting the cut side down in the kiln and full fusing it again.
I need to get the shape right by cold working the fused shape with my grinder. Here’s a picture of my grinder in action.
This is a piece called “Paris Elegance” that I’m touching up with the grinder to make sure that the edges are straight.
I always like the edges of my glass works to be as close to perfectly straight as I can make them.
Unless, of course, the edges aren’t meant to be straight as in my “”English Channel” series.
So as you can see, I can make the wine bottle stoppers in almost any colour combination that you’d like.
I use stringers and frit and confetti and sheet glass.
These are the stringers I use. Threads of coloured glass.
Are you a glass half full person?
well if you only finish half a bottle of wine – you can put a wine bottle stopper into it (for a few days only).
Here’s where you can purchase the Wine Bottle Stopper.
