Full Spread

Rather than see the glass half empty once the spirits are spent, Val Huegerich revives wine bottles so they can join the revelry once more. Her one-of-a-kind glass platters are kiln-formed from recycled bottles gathered from the roadside and national forests near her home in Wyoming. She then cleans and strips the vessels of their labels before melting them into gorgeous, glossy trays. Paired with cork-topped cheese knives, each functional work of art makes a polished backdrop for cheeses and passed hors d'oeuvres. Rustic yet refined, these sets are ideal for the avid entertainer and are great to slip into a picnic basket (along with your favorite cuvée) to make an alfresco lunch a little more special. Handmade in Laramie, Wyoming.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Sold individually.

Made in Wyoming

Val Huegerich brings out the beauty of items others discard and forget. She considers herself a creator, and when she gets stuck she goes for walks in the national forest that borders her property in Wyoming. Often she finds bottle glass left behind, and it brings her great pleasure to not only create beautiful art from others' refuse, but to also use the process as an opportunity to clean up her surroundings for all to enjoy.

            Comments about UncommonGoods Recycled Wine Bottle Platter with Spreader:

            First, I assumed based on the photo that it came in two halves? It does not. You'll receive one half of a wine bottle and a cheese spreader but it's all much, much smaller in person. As I went to wrap it, the cork broke off. I managed to keep it in place using a needle but come on, right? After all that, most people passed on the gift bc while functional, it makes a better conversation piece . You'd fit about a dozen crackers with a small amount of cheese at best but even if it's all good in the hood, the cork will eventually become degraded even if you hand wash carefully.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivere promptyly and boxed nicely. I must've accidentally selected gift wrapping and the box was inside another bocwith a bow tie. It was so oversized for the gift, I needed to re wrap it.
