You'll need:

- a bottle (I used a pub-sized Gordon's Gin one)
- a kiln

Use the kiln to slump the bottle - simples :). Kiln schedules abound on the internet, although each kiln is different, and you might need to adjust  and yours will come out nicer than mine if you remember to run to the studio to flash-cool it, so it won't devitrify. Still, happy with the shape and the way the imagery stayed intact :)

    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!
