Day Dreamer

Turn just another day into a day like no other with this artful perpetual calendar, which features glass rings fashioned from upcycled wine bottles and a rustic wood frame crafted from the beams of old homes. Mark either the current day or a special upcoming date by sliding the rings past a steel divider wrapped with copper wire-- inspired by tying a finger with string to remember something important. To indicate the month, move the appropriate number of rings (1=January) on the top row from right to left. The middle row represents the date's first digit, and the bottom the second digit. Place this functional art piece prominently among your favorite bookshelf finds or atop your desk at work for daily inspiration, and spend every day in perpetual wonder. A collaboration by Kathleen Plate and Margaret Taylor. Made in Atlanta, Georgia.

Kathleen Plate and Margaret Taylor for the Uncommon Collection



For both Kathleen Plate and Margaret Taylor, handcrafting began as a family affair. Growing up, Kathleen watched her mother cut and solder glass, learning the techniques she brings to the recycled glass jewelry she creates for her Smart Glass Art collection. Inspired by the fundamental beauty of paint and texture she saw while helping her father on house projects, Margaret gained the confidence and ability to create everything from picture frames and furniture to birdhouses and garden art for her business, Dryads Dancing. Together, they created the It’s a Date Wine Bottle Glass Calendar for our Uncommon Collection.

Each item in the Uncommon Collection meets five important standards. Here's how Perpetual Art Glass Calendar qualified for the Collection:
