Templeton and Rose Upcycled Glass Designs

Templeton and Rose had an unconventional beginning. In October of 2019, I was out of work and in need of a hobby. I also love wine. And without an income it was getting more difficult for me to justify continuing to buy wine. It was that thought that made me realize that if I could somehow turn my recycled wine bottles into a business, I would not have to give up my evening glass of wine. After too many google searches, YouTube videos, and impulse purchases I realized that I wanted to learn to make glassware. It ticked every box: I would have a hobby, I could continue to drink wine, and it would fill my empty cabinets with glassware.

Over the next few months I fell in love with the process of recycling beer, wine, and liquor bottles into repurposed glassware. Through trial and error, I found the process that worked best for me and quickly began creating and etching wine glasses. I learned how to do it without power tools so that my recycling process would be as eco-friendly as possible. Local restaurants supply me with endless bottles (see my shop photos for proof) to help with an effort to limit community waste. I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of turning each bottle into a unique Templeton and Rose product.

Consequently, my hobby has become my career. I have created Templeton and Rose. Rose was a childhood nick name and Templeton a character from a favorite children's book with a similar outlook on life: a love of the items most people throw away. I am excited to share my glassware creations with you!
