How many beads can be made from a wine bottle?

As part of my SALA exhibition “Upper Glass” I set myself the challenge of making beads from a “Tally” wine bottle from the Balnaves of Coonawarra winery. ┬áThe challenge was to use ALL of the glass from the bottle, and make all sorts of beads.

It took a few torch sessions to make all of the beads that I could possibly make and the end result was: 274 beads!
