I know it’s unfair to say the C word in October, but Christmas is really close! So the point of scaring the life out of you and bringing up the subject of Christmas is so you can start consider our amazing product range for those unique gifts!
One of our most talked about product lines are our bottle clocks. This is probably because people are amazed the first time they see them as they wonder how they go from being spherical bottles to a flat bottle clock! Obviously we won’t tell you our secret, but what we can say is that they are all made with recycled bottles in our studio in Shropshire in our specialist kiln.
One of our best sellers is our Jack Daniels Bottle Clock. When the recycled bottle comes out of the kiln, it is not fully flat as the bottom of the bottle has folded up to create a pushed up bottom look! This adds to the effect once it is put on the wall as you can clearly see that it is an old jack Daniels bottle and that is not has another life as a clock!
The labels on all our bottle clocks are lovingly and carefully peeled off to make sure that when they are reapplied after the kiln that they look just as they did, pre kiln. A good example of this is our Magners Cider bottle clock. This is also a recycled bottle that has been through the kiln process to create a stunning bottle clock. The green of the Magners bottle really stands out with the gold of the clock hands, as does the gold within the label.
We don’t just make beer bottle clocks as another great seller for us is our wine bottle clocks. We have a constant supply of wine bottles as not only do generous people give us their empties, but also our French wine farmer friends over at Chateau Saint Nabor are kind enough to give us as many bottle and labels as we can get our hands on! This will soon be added to our site, but at the moment, they leave our stock as soon as they are made! You can see a photo below of our bottle clocks on display in their cave.
Remember that we are also doing many commissions for customers where they have a favourite bottle of wine made into a clock, or a bottle that means something to them such as an engagement present made into a clock that they can hang on their wall and be reminded of every time they pass it. It’s a much better way of reliving a great memory than putting the empty bottle in the cupboard, only for it to collect dust!
