How did you heat a whole glass bottle to make it flat?

Sorry that was miss leading, I broke the bottle first then heated the pieces with a propane torch. Takes a little time but Oxy Acetylene I found to be too much heat too fast. Perfect heat I think would be propane and oxy, something I need to experiment with. I will also try building a small foundry using the left over fire bricks from the oven project.

Heating glass is an all new area for me.

I've never considered it. I'll be interested to hear how it goes.

Have not updated in a while, too busy cooking in the oven. This year is the mosaic exterior. Marine theme. Just started the octopus on top

Talking Re: New Build Oven At Granite Falls

Octopus getting glass mosaic, ran out before I could get him finished. Bought 7 pounds of the stuff and was shy by a good 3 pounds.

Notice the eyes....very cool when the sun hit's them.

Agree with V-wiz, I like the 3D effect...super job.


I have something I'm designing right now using glass tile...a mosaic for an outdoor shower. There's an octopus in there too, I was shopping around for bubble tile. Did you use a local supplier or online?

The bubble tile comes from pet stores, it's used for fish tank decoration. Be careful though because some is painted glass and not colored. It would fade. If you go online to somewhere like petco you can buy in bulk as the pet stores usually only carry a couple of packs
