First there was the purse, then the vase, and now I present these lovely Drinks Bottle Lights by Sarah Turner. Her Web site sheds a bit of light on the process:

"The bottles are collected, cleaned, sandblasted and then transformed into decorative shapes totally unrecognisable from their original state. They are then screwed into the inner shade which is made from recycled card."

The shades come in three sizes (pricing to be determined), reusing either one, ten, or thirty drink bottles. I love the plastic blooms and am impressed that she's found a way to combine form and function (without the bottles melting from the bulb's heat, etc). You can check out her portfolio for more ideas—I look forward to seeing her future designs.

Thank you for sharing this.
