Glass is one of my favorite materials to work with. In addition to it's smooth and shiny look, glass is an abundant and versatile resource. Each glass bottle is rescued from ending up in a landfill and given a new life.
Approximately 10 million tons of glass containers are produced annually in America.* A single glass bottle can take a million years to completely degrade in the ocean.^
