Bottled Up

Giving found wine and liquor bottles new life, artist Kathleen Plate transforms these everyday items into illuminating works of art. What started as a technique to make glass jewelry soon gave way to commercial and residential lighting designs. Crafted in her Atlanta studio using a patented firing process, each piece is designed to enhance the look and color of the recycled material.

Just like the light bounces off your favorite bottle of wine at a candlelit table, these gorgeous pendants cast a soft glow using a unique stacked process. Lustrous wine or vodka bottles are cut, fired and stacked to create an eye-catching cylindrical silhouette that offers intriguing twists and curves from every angle. Handmade in Atlanta.

Kathleen Plate's elegant and contemporary recycled glass jewelry has a bit of family history. Plate grew up in Washington and observed the art of cutting and soldering glass by her crafty mother. She still brings those skills to her pieces today.

During the mid 1990s she began making and selling jewelry in her spare time. She did so well that she decided to take her Smart Glass work national, even though it meant putting off her graduate work in American Literature.

Smart Glass pieces are all handmade from bright and bold stained glass, silver solder and sterling silver. Plate believes in simplicity and respect for the earth and the human spirit. All her designs use recycled material, while portions of the proceeds from others will go to support many of Kathleen's favorite non-profit organizations.
