You'll need:

- two glass coke bottles (or others)
- corks
- thick-walled glass tubes (or other tubes, if easier to get hold of)
- grinder and carbide knife (optional)
- drill slightly smaller than tube diameter
- oil and vinegar

Cut corks to size if they won't fir bottles as they are. Cut an approximately 4-5 cm length of glass tube with carbide knife, and grind at an angle at the top, flat at the bottom, then make sure all sharp edges get smoothed. Drill corks at a diameter slightly smaller than tubes, then force tubes into holes. Fill with olive oil and balsamic vinegar - and never confuse the balsamic vinegar with coke!

    The "Take a Bottle" project is, essentially, an combination of a) my "Follies for Follies" project, which got me into whimsical work, c) recycling and preserving the planet, d) a general tendency to tinker, and e) an ever-existing quest to make glass accessible to a wide variety of people. The concept is simple - taking existing glass (it doesn't have to be a bottle, of course), and turn it into something else. While I am mainly running this project for my own amusement, I am very happy to run workshops on glass recycling and crafting with glass. If you do any of the projects, I'd love to see your results!
