Bruce Coney of Studio Coney has for many years been recycling glass bottles and turning them into useful and functional Cruet bottles.
To create a cruet pourer Bruce sources a recycled bottle cleans off all labels and markings, washes and sterilizes and paints it by hand with a special glass paint.
The bottle is then fired and the paint cures and bonds onto the glass. A pourer is then added and, voila, you have a very useful cruet bottle that can be used for olive oil, vinegar, salad dressing, dish detergent, liquid soap - virtually anything you can pour.
All glassware items can be washed with hot water and detergent.
Handcrafted on Salt Spring Island, B.C.

Vancouver Island born Erika Lauren began making jewellery in 2009 as a creative outlet during University. Soon friends and family began asking her to make pieces for them and Erika Lauren Design was born.
However, it was a small bag of naturally shed porcupine quills that were gifted to her by a family friend that would become the heart and soul of her work. Being curious about all things, Erika quickly took to the design challenge and created what is now her best-selling porcupine quill collection.
Erika Lauren Design is committed to using materials to create jewellery that is as sustainable as it is sophisticated. Erika’s work has been recognised in numerous international fashion magazines and she has been shown at New York Fashion Week and Vancouver Fashion Week.
