Here's my latest offering.


50% of the content is recycled glass I clear from my local beaches. I started this project by creating a prototype and casting a mold from it. I then cast a mixture of cement and the crushed glass into the mold and grind/polish after it has finished curing. I am very pleased with the outcome. Let me know what you think.

That's quite nice. I like the post-industrial look. How many tries did it take to get the balance right?

I love the materials used, I'm a texture toucher. The design is nice, though I wonder what happens when you take the bottle out, does it stay put. I think the material would look great as a countertop or vase as well.

aethelberga: I created this from a prototype that i fine tuned then I rendered a silicon mold from the prototype. So the answer is one try;)

gonecraftin: The holder doesnt stand on its own and you have to have at least 1 glass of wine left in the bottle for it to balance, so if it wont balance you should drink the rest. Grin Its funny you said this would be a great material for a countertop because thats how i got started using concrete.

I like the holder and have been looking on internet for measurements to make one out of wood but no luck. 

We cut firewood for woodburning stove and have come across some beautiful pieces I will not let hubby cut. 

Is it possible to get tutorial or measurements.... ;0)?
