Glass Bottle Kiln - Podere Casa Rosa - Italy



The Glass Bottle Kiln is built with recycled wine bottles which are held together by sandy soil.
The firing, which is carried out with wood, must ascend gradually, taking from 8 to 10 hours, to arrive at a temperature of 800-900°C, the point at which the glass begins its fusion. Inside the kiln, the flames can be seen to rise slowly towards the chimney until exiting and dissolving in twirls of a thousand sparks.
The Glass Bottle Kiln had become a glass grotto with thousands of translucent stalactites
Thanks to all friends and helpers, how were involved in building and firing.
