Tall Glass Storage Jar in Amber made from a chai tea bottle 

8 inches tall x 3.5 inches wide. 

Great for holding spices, teas, herbs. 


Not completely air tight. The original bottle this jar is made from Might not have been blown perfectly round so some of these jars are not air tight, some are, it depends on how perfect the original bottle was made round. We suggest twisting cork on and off to find the best seal for your jar.

The bottles are all donated glass bottles from our local Santa Fe community. By upcycling the glass bottles we are giving a second life to mass produced product packaging. This insures the glass is kept out of the landfill and moving forward to live a long and happy upcycled life.

Our upcycling process - First step is to sort, clean and de-lable the bottles. Then we score and hot pop the tops off (this means we cut the glass by making a score mark on the surface. Then add a flame to the score mark and voila, it hot pops off). Next, we polish the rough popped lip to smooth out all the unevenness. This prepares the glass to use a torch to fire polish the lip so that we achieve a nice rounded glossy finish. Our last step is to anneal the glass in a glass kiln.

Cheers for helping us help the environment, and for supporting us on our journey of creating sustainable and professionally crafted handmade glass art.
