Ornaments Made from Baby Juice Jars

I saw an ornament at a craft fair that was made out of baby juice jars that looked like they were melted a little and pressed together. Before they melted and pressed it together, they had placed a picture of a snowman or whatever on the inside. Does anyone know how to melt the jars and press them flat like that?

They probably used a kiln...haven't seen anything like that though, so not sure!

Hi, the short answer is that they do it in an electric kiln using a technique called "slumping". Tthe bottles are placed in position on a specially treated surface in the kiln. The kiln then heats up until the glass starts becoming soft and collapses ("slumps") to make the item you saw. Do a search for "glass slumping" to find someone in your area. Have a nice day!
