Conversion Range by Katie-Anne Houghton

Recycled bottles. Launched at Canberra Glassworks in November 2023

The Conversion Range by Glassblower Katie-Ann Houghton was created exclusively for Canberra Glassworks. Repurposing mass-produced wine bottles into a hand-made jug and glass set, from 100% recycled glass reflects our efforts to showcases glassblowing talent, save energy, reduce waste, and our commitment to sustainability through design excellence. Recycling bottles is a crucial component of sustainable waste management, contributing significantly to environmental conservation.

The creation of the Conversion Range follows a detailed process: collecting and cleaning used bottles, transforming them through glassblowing, and then intricately hand cutting and polishing each piece to craft this unique product. This method not only reduces the demand for raw materials but also minimises the environmental impact linked to production. The Conversion Range is available in our Gallery Shop
