The Woodstock Market Place
December 6, 2010 § 2 Comments
I had the opportunity to be a part of the Woodstock Market show today for NETWORX – a home improvment network online community for home owners connecting and discussing their DIY and Home improvement projects. It was quite a cold, windy and a gloomy day. The market was bustling with stalls with various local artists who arranged their wares not one bit de-motivated by the weather. I walked around checking out stuff when I fell in love with glass lanterns made from recycled wine bottles and thought it deserves to be a part of the..I Digg this!… blog entry.
Aren’t these cool? A perfect gift for a person who loves green, organic and recycled things. I stopped by and had a little chat with the owner who didn’t seem very excited about the weather but was enthusiastic to share with me how they make these beauties. They are made here by a local company in Atlanta called MetalScenes. I first wondered how they inserted the part that holds the candle and then realized the bottle is cut from the bottom and designed with a rim (I don’t really know the material, but seemed safe to touch). The bottles are then custom etched with nice patterns and designs. They cost $25 ea. and can be hung together like a bunch from a tree or patio.
I totally digg this! and appreciate people like Mike and Steve Smithwick for making art from recycled bottles.
