Antique glass repair is very rewarding. This glass figurine had been broken for years before they found me. Even with pieces missing I was able to complete the restoration.

How to make a wine bottle a vase

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009 Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off on How to make a wine bottle a vase

This unique blue glass wine bottle had to be saved from the trash. My customer brought it in so I could just cut of the neck.  This was not a good  solution.  I cut off the bottom of the bottle then used the bottom to make a foot for the new vase.

Waterford Crystal Lamp Repair

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique lamp repair, Broken Decanter Repair | Comments Off on Waterford Crystal Lamp Repair

From a pile of pieces come a lamp.  It started with a broke ships decanter she saved for years and then she broke the base to a hurricane lamp . I used the broke Waterford Crystal ships decanter to make a new lamp base. I cut it off and polished the top . I found a piece to an old chandlier and used it along with the old top to the Waterford Hurricane Lamp.  I wish I had the globe to  the lamp.
