Constance + Variance

File this under newly obsessed and must have. I was so excited to recently be alerted to Timothy Daw’s beautiful line of recycled etched bottles. Besides bonus points for being affordable, the way Timothy comes about his bottles is pretty cool: with lots of friends working in SF bars and restaurants, he’s been able to collect plenty of interestingly shaped bottles, then repurpose them by adding his own unique etching designs. I’m totally digging the art deco feel he’s come up with. Wouldn’t they look fantastic on a bar cart?

Currently, he offers two sets, The Variance ($79), and The Constance ($49). Supply comes and goes, so be sure to check out his Etsy shop and stay in contact with him for your own set!

UPDATE: Timothy emailed me in May of 2013 to let me know about a Kickstarter campaign he’s launched to help get his business off the ground! You should check it out here — helping his Kickstarter will allow him to purchase his own laser etching machine so that he can produce lots more bottles, and a lot quicker. Which means more inventory, so you can get your hands on a set of these beauties. Check it out!
