Jarring Lights

I grew up in a commune with a good culture of recycling, and a correspondingly robust love of wine, Perrier, (bread) and jam. Sunny days were made for walks to the glass recycling bank with my step father, paper bags of clonking bottles in tow.

Rainy days however, were reserved for craft projects.

If you’ve ever admired the way light passes through glass, you’d understand the fascination everyone’s been having with mason jar lights and wine bottle chandeliers. The future of glass vessels has never been so bright!
