hotflat by ljiljana kolundzic


lijiljana kolundzic of milimetar. has designed hotflat, a coaster / piece of tableware that is made from reused glass bottles. glass wine bottles and water bottles are heated and pressed to become flat plates which can be used as a coaster for hot items or as a small dish.

  • it’s not a new thing and the basic thing u can do with that. but still its pretty though.

  • The potter Reg Moon produced the ‘squashed bottle ashtray’ in the seventies, from his empty Gordons Gin bottles.
    My Grandfather had one.

  • Very comum. I´ve worked with glass kilns and this is the most basic that you can do!
    You can see these glass work for bathrooms

  • I agree with the others that is is not designed nor a new idea. Get a kiln and fire to cone 014 and there you go.

  • You say she has ‘designed’ these. Really?
    there doesn’t seem to be anything distinguished about this rendition of an old, but good idea

  • ditto to leila. not really new or special- intro glass kiln working a assignment. also by the way, not the most flat/useful surface in the world. glass is pretty though.

  • nepotreban komentar!!! ljilja je super:)

  • They´re only heated…
    It´s cool, but it´s not a new idea. It´s pretty common to find it and i´ve done it in college. Although it´s a good way to reuse bottles.
