To create a wine bottle “dish” that can hold condiments, dips, olives and other party items, place a 1 liter wine bottle in GM29 or a 750 ml wine bottle in GM17. Fire using the primary firing schedule minus the hold time in segment 3. This schedule adjustment is to prevent the sides of the bottle from curling inward If the glass is allowed to remain very hot for too long.

Hot Tip for Cool Dip!

Create a “chiller bottle” by partially slumping the bottle to leave a reservoir in the bottle body to hold  frozen water. Simply follow the primary firing schedule and eliminate segment 3 entirely. Depending on the size of the bottle and thickness of the glass, it might be necessary to add hold time in segment 2. Begin with a 10 minute hold time at segment 2. The bottle will begin to sag in the middle, but the neck will remain open. After the piece is cooled and removed from the kiln, wash the partially slumped wine bottle and fill 1/4 with tap water. Trim the bottom of a cork such that it can be placed securely back into the opening of the bottle. Place the bottle flat and level in the freezer. Allow the water to freeze. 10 minutes before you intend
