Blue recycled bottle vase, etched glass vase with flying geese design

Blue recycled bottle vase, etched glass vase with flying geese design
£28.00 1 Available
Love this


You might well recognise this if I tell you that this vase used to be bottle full of gin… but now it’s a rather lovely vase.

This square recycled glass vase is a beautiful sky blue, sandblasted to give a frosted finish with a design of a skein of flying geese circling over the marsh.

An ideal gift for a gin-loving eco-warrier.

Sandblasted recycled sky blue glass bottle vase, handmade by me in my home studio on the Wirral peninsula, NW England.

DIMENSIONS: The vase is 8cm (3.25") square and 16cm (6.5") tall.
CARE: The frosted finish is permanently etched into the glass and has a protective coating to resist finger marks. I advise gentle handwashing to retain the protective surface coating; do not put this vase in the dishwasher as over time this will dull the surface.

I am never one to pass up free raw materials and bottles often come in such good quality glass that it seems a crime to just smash them up for recycling. You may well recognise which brand of gin used to be in this distinctively coloured bottle!

To create the vase I cut off the top of the bottle and ground the glass smooth, before sandblasting the design on and finishing the surface with a protective coating.
