Hunting and gathering of beautiful and unusual bottles is the first step. Most of my raw material comes from just a few miles away, though people farther afield sometimes bring bottles along when they come to my small city. I wash and de-tag the bottles first. Then I break them into pieces, arrange them for beauty and structural stability, and melt them at more than a thousand degrees Fahrenheit. I let the pieces cool, then I heat them again to a slightly lower temperature over ceramic forms so that they take on the shapes of bowls or plates. After washing again to remove the kiln wash remnants, I sign each piece with my initials and the year.
