Crystal Head Hack

I'm sure many of you are familiar with Crystal Head Vodka - especially if you've been through a liquor store at an airport.

Our bottle had been empty for a while and so Jp decided to have the top cut off to make it into a pen holder - he contacted a local glass company and found a guy there that is really skilled at hand cutting. In fact, he is so talented he is one of the main people in the city who custom cuts motorcycle windscreens. Jp wanted to see it happen, so the guy said come on in.
This is the end result:

There have been several really interesting things done in relation to this bottle - one is the forensic reconstruction and if you google "crystal head vodka crafts" you will see all sorts of painting techniques.
