Custom Apothecary Glass:
Sustainability is at the forefront of my practice. Being a glassworker- this means I work specifically on a torch to make my handblown glass. In large scale factories, glass is typically made with "bottle machines" this means that molten glass is always kept up to temperature (approx 2100 degree fahrenheit) and gathered by the machine to be dropped into a mold. Due to the factory machinery- this means hundreds of bottles can be made at a time for mass production. While this can be great for creating the amount of bottles that society uses, this isn't a lucrative system for a small business, nor is is a sustainable use of glass!
***CALL TO ACTION***
I am looking to collect ANY AND ALL old apothecary bottles that are made of glass. Have you finished a recent facial serum, or perfume roll on? SEND IT MY WAY- I use all old glass for future artistic projects! These bottles will be melted down into molds and reshaped into a new form!
I will have a drop off box at EVERY market I vend, so feel free to bring old glass by (clean or not, I will take care of the cleaning!)
Every donation gets a 15% off coupon code and if you donate 5 or more bottles you will receive a FREE perfume roll on of your choice!
