local artist spotlight: Katie Owrey

For this ‘local artist spotlight’, I’m once again using the term ‘local’ quite loosely. Katie & I have been friends since college and although many state lines now separate us, she will always be one of my nearest and dearest friends.  

I’m thrilled to be able to promote her new business venture as an independant wine consultant as well as her new hobby – repurposing wine bottles into one-of-a-kind lamps!

Check out her website to order gifts, custimized bottles of wine, and join the wine club where you’ll receive remarkable wines at an incredible value delivered right to your door each month!

Wine lamps can be purchased directly thru Katie by calling 404-661-1976 or emailing

I got into wine by being a major consumer for many years! I have tasted wine all across different appellations including Greece, Turkey, Spain, Italy, France, and the US (CA, TX, NY, TN, GA), etc. The art of winemaking and the ability for wine to transform and take shape on your palette is what makes wine consumption so much fun! It is often considered the only beverage in the world that can spark intelligent and intriguing conversation…not just from consumption (wink), but rather, where the wine is from, what foods should be paired with the wine, how was the wine made, etc.

I recycle wine bottles to handcraft the wine lamps and create a unique accessory for the home. By drilling into the wine bottle and then adding lights and colored marbles, the reflection of light creates an appealing sparkle all in the name of wine! “Lumiere de Vie” or Light of Life…that which wine provides! Great for yourself or for a gift!
