I’d rather call it re-loved glass instead of recycled glass. People save all kinds of wine and liquor bottles for me. That is so cool! I re-imagine these bottles as something else, then plot out the steps to make my vision a reality.
I cut them up on the tile saw to make them into something new – wind chimes, bowls, paperweights and vases. Every time I touch the glass during production, it gets loved a little more, instead of being useless in a land fill somewhere.
