RECYCLED GLASSWORKS by Lauren Becker
(238 Bonview St, San Francisco, CA 94110, U.S.)
Recycled Glassworks specializes in the production of handmade, unique plates and bowls. Lauren Becker cuts every piece from used window-type glass, and kiln-fires it over molds that give it its new form, as well as a brand new life. They offers a variety of green #tableware, each rescuing some sort of glass otherwise destined for disposal. Old windows, doors, glass shelves, and tabletops now find their way to the dinner table with #amazing plates, bowls, and platters and each piece is unique and exclusive.
“In 1996, I started Recycled Glassworks because glass is a wonderful material, both for reuse and for tableware.
My work does not consume any brand-new materials (even my packing materials are reused). Yet the resulting dishes look new and fresh. Plenty of glass exists already; it does not degrade over time. Bottle glass has an established recycling infrastructure. Plate glass, however, ends up in landfill, unless it gets upcycled into a second life” (Lauren Becker)
What could be more exclusive than something that, as well as being #fabulous and unique, respects the #environment throughout its manufacturing processes?
