Bending the Bottles
Bottle Benders is a family business spanning three generations with over 45 years of experience. They have been making chimes by hand in Eastanollee, Georgia since 1970! The chimes are made from re-purposed wine bottles which are sliced and “slumped” in a kiln at 1,500 degrees F. Metal parts are cut and prepped in house, and everything is hand assembled by the family team, led by founders Jean and Ted Chalfant. Available locally at Creative Connections (see ad on page 14) and online at www.creativeconnections.com. Bottle Bender wind chimes range from $49 to $59.
