Ted’s Glass Bottle Jeep Clock

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features

A friend of Ted’s is an artist who creates clocks out of melted bottles.  Ted asked him to make this unusual jeep clock.  I’m sure Tom will make one for you if you are interested.

Tom writes, “For the most part the bottle bottom fold sup, if the bottom has an indent in the bottle, which is found on smaller bottles, it will melt straight down. The type used on Ted’s bottle basically comes out the same.  The bottle can be mounted either horizontally or vertically.  The vertical bottles have the neck wrapped so they can be hung.  The clocks are battery operated.  It takes 12 hours to melt one bottle and about 35% of them break while drilling the hole for the clock arms. The cost is generally $35 to $40 plus shipping and sales tax.”

Here is Tom’s bottle.  Below that is an example of another clock.
