In March 2018 our previous and new interns started organizing our glass bottle recycling program. This multi-step process requires cleaning and breaking down the bottles, tumbling and sorting out the chunks into usable sizes, and testing melt temperatures and firing schedules.
Here are some of the tests post-firing, along with their molds. We are continuing to experiment with different types of glass bottles, along with recycling old testers, broken art pieces, and misfires. The ultimate goal is a waste-free shop.
