Lampworking day #23. Part 1 - the batch anneal and bottle break.


I batch annealed all the beads!  :D


Yay.

Then I proceded with the recycled glass idea.  I want to use recycled glass.  I started with this beer bottle.


Here's that national brewery logo:


I put it in two shopping bags and threw it with all of my strength.  It bounced.  Then my dad threw it and broke it perfectly. 


Then I put it in a small plate and separated some pieces by size.



My plan was to melt the bigger shards and stretch them into rods, to make beads with. 

Part 2 coming later today.
