This Little Piggy
Main Material: Discarded Beverage Bottles
This project utilizes discarded beverage bottles as a raw material.
By reiterating the original, high-tech manufacturing process of blow molding in a low-tech manner using basic tools and components, the empty bottle is converted into a vessel of value. In just minutes a small oven, an air compressor and a plywood mold are used to re-blow mold an empty bottle into a newly functional item.
