Melting whole bottles into chicken wire

Associated Challenge: 

Here are images from recent testing using whole bottles with embedded metal wire. The thought is to have a more simplified construction unit that would be attached to the structure using steel or copper wire or mesh. The technique would use less energy since it's a lower melting temperature to just collapse (slump) the bottle. The bottles could then function as tiles or perhaps slumped into a hemi-cylinder shape aka italian roofing tiles.
