Bread and Bitter Bar

Bread and Bitter Bar

Designed by Claire Williamson Glassworks.
This job was so much fun.
All the glass used is from bottles. First we had to beg and plead everyone we knew to save interesting empty bottles for us (no we didn't drink all of them!).
Then we had to start squishing (or the more technical term "slumping") them. Many many firings later we had enough flat bottles.
Now for the background glass....it's quite difficult to break bottles evenly you know!. The rondles in these panels are the bottoms of bottles also. Many more firings later we were ready to get to leading finally.
