WINE BOTTLE TUMBLER SET
$96.00| 6 pieces |
A bottle of wine is often silent witness to a few dance steps, a debate, a burst of laughter, or a seduction game. Q de Bouteilles reimagines recycling by making those sacred moments last through art, giving bottles a second life once they are emptied of wine, and filled with memories. Q de Bouteilles collect empty bottles from restaurants around France, then cut, polish and shape them through an artisanal process. This set of 6 yellow glasses combine perfectly with any dinnerware, whether for a casual or more special occasion, featuring classic and contemporary designs that are also functional and easy to care for. Perfect to serve wine or water.
In January 2016, Q des Bouteilles embarked on a mission to collect empty wine bottles from restaurants around France. In a creative reimagining of recycling, Q set about creating beautiful pieces from these salvaged materials. The first bottles were cut with a string, methylated spirit and iced water to create a thermal shock: an arduous but effective method. Soon, friends were asking for more.
In just a few months the word spread, and friends of friends were also clamouring for Q’s work. Sensing that they had stumbled upon something promising, Q de Bouteilles was born. Partnerships were created with diverse craftspeople, who all soon shared their passion for – and mastery of – cold glass working.
By 2017, Q de Bouteilles had moved from the barn where the projects were born into a specialized production workshop in Cucq, Pas-de-Calais. Since then, a dozen craftsmen have joined the team and been busy applying all of their know-how to sort out, cut, polish and shape the bottles that are collected, following a refined artisanal process.
