This is my latest addition to my glass themed series.

A bit different to the others. The bottles are either clear or recycled glass with a green tinge. So not the high colours I usually have. My bathroom is so dark (due to the carport outside) I'm trying the less coloured bottles on the sill as they let more light in.

 

Added to Smile on Sunday 05-03-17 'Shadows' theme.

 

*** The rest of my glass series on flickr :-)

4 recycled glasses, used Silver Efex Pro 2 to process the photo.

People are in every way prevented from getting inside themselves. Our greatest problem is a fear of depth.

- Thomas Merton

 

Before all greatness, be silent—in art, in music, in religion: silence.

-Friedrich von Hügel

 

There lives the dearest freshness deep down things.

-Gerard Manley Hopkins

You could translate all this loneliness, this groping, this dreadful bloody buffoonery into Christian terms that will make life bearable for us all. And yet you don’t say a word. Why Canon, arid Canon? Isn’t this your job? To translate.

-Brian Friel, Philadelphia Here I Come

 

Theology will be doing its job when ‘God’ connotes that wine without which life is tepid water.

-Sebastian Moore

Some recycled glass found from the ocean made into a pretty trinket ... a lot this is found along the coast of Maine.

 

Happy Macro Monday

Finding a shaft of sunlight, 66177 heads away from Frodsham in Cheshire with 6Z53, the previous night's 1906 Tilbury to Ince and Elton, conveying recycled glass for the Encirc plant at Ellesmere Port.

 

Three different sources of power are visible: in the distance on the left is SSE's Fiddlers Ferry coal-fired power station, with a capacity to generate 1,989 megawatts.

 

Closer, on the right is Rocksavage power station, a 800 megawatt gas-fired power station.

 

The wind turbines are part of the Peel Group's Frodsham Wind Farm, which is one of England's largest onshore generating stations, and has a capacity of 'over' 50 megawatts.

 

Also visible are several significant energy users - Ineos' West Point site, which manufactures hydrofluorocarbons, the M56, which connects the south of Manchester with Cheshire, and of course the railway.

 

As a significant energy user, and with no irony, the train has travelled 213 miles exclusively on diesel power, on a route that is mostly electrified, to convey glass for recycling.

Well, this is definitely a redo but I really like the composition so I'm posting it. And I was excited to finally get to use my recycled glass bottle dish that I got from the farmer's market.

In Kaliphlin, glass making is a significant industry and throughout Historica Barqan glass is a synonym for glass of the highest quality.

 

The making of raw glass is done in large furnaces. In small workshops such as this one, at lower temperatures the raw glass is then together with recycled glass used to produce the finished glass products.

 

Built for the "Kaliphlin at Work" collab in Guilds of Historica, at Eurobricks.

Week 3 - 52 Weeks: The 2020 Edition

----------------------------------------

“Americans make more trash than anyone else on the planet, throwing away about 7.1 pounds per person per day, 365 days a year. Across a lifetime that rate means, on average, we are each on track to generate 102 tons of trash.

 

Each of our bodies may occupy only one cemetery plot when we’re done with this world, but a single person’s 102-ton trash legacy will require the equivalent of 1,100 graves.

 

Much of that refuse will outlast any grave marker, pharaoh’s pyramid or modern skyscraper: One of the few relics of our civilization guaranteed to be recognizable twenty thousand years from now is the potato chip bag.”

 

“Recycling trash, on the other hand, has a lower environmental impact and pound for pound, can save more energy than burning the same trash produces.

 

Recycling aluminum cans, for instance, saves a whopping 96 percent of the energy needed to produce aluminum from bauxite ore.

 

Recycling glass jars and bottles saves 21 percent of the energy needed to make new glass, recycling newsprint saves 45 percent, and recycling plastic beverage bottles saves 76 percent (other plastic types differ in the percentages, but the energy savings are there, too).”

'Disabled' cutlery for degree show

“A corner of the blanket was raised cautiously: a breathing object lay beneath; a face, a human face, was turned slowly toward us—a face in which scarcely a trace of anything human remained.” The young patient was near death. “The dark skin was puffed out and blackened; a kind of moss, or mould, gummy and glistening, covered it; the muscles of the mouth, having contracted, laid bare the grinning teeth; the thickened tongue lay like a fig between them.” The child’s eyes were open, “the eyelids, curled tightly back, exposed the inner surface, and the protruding eyeballs, now shapeless and broken, looked not unlike bursted grapes.”

HMM- the theme this week is "rock". and since much of my energies in the past 2 weeks have been directed to the quest for a piece of quartz countertop that will match or coordinate with my beloved counters (on the right), i thought i'd show you a piece, up close. in my searching i have discovered that the silestone brand is made from quartz (the white and grey teeny tiny fragments) and other things (like recycled glass) to add a bit of color and sparkle. this is way less than 3 inches as it is a portion of a portion of backsplash.

i will understand if the admins choose not to count this, but the only other thing i have is a carved marble eagle from the granite and marble company showroom, which i think is a tad too large.

His dilemma was anchored in the dualistic point of view that set the secular world over against the monastic cloister. He noted, “I brought all the instincts of a writer with me into the monastery. . . . [T] here was this shadow, this double, this writer who had followed me into the cloister.” 51 His conflict was radically described: “Maybe in the end he [a writer] will kill me, he will drink my blood. . . . There are the days when there seems to be nothing left of my vocation—my contemplative vocation—but a few ashes.”

This is like a small paper weight heart that I gave my Mom, years ago. It is made out of recycled glass.

 

Thank you all for your great comments.

Sometimes individuals pass our way and then disappear. These individuals may disappear from our lives but their shadow remains. This is very positive and healing!

My God, are the doors really being shut now? Yes they are. Shut on the herded, densely packed mass of people inside … The commandant takes a bicycle and rides along the entire length of the train. Then he makes a brief gesture like royalty in an operetta. A little orderly comes flying up and deferentially relieves him of his bicycle. The train gives a piercing whistle. And 1,020 Jews leave Holland.

In this work i make a texture relief in background to reduce the light and faint the urban structures. The texture is a relief of typical Portuguese tiles of some older buildings.

Thank you dear friends for the kind comments and invitations these last days and so sorry for some late catching up, i am working in this series about Lisbon.

Hope you like it ! : ) All the best to you ! : )

Excerpt from cbsnews.com:

 

These fairytale-like structures were built by Édouard Arsenault out of more than 25,000 recycled glass bottles that he gathered from around the community. Construction on all three buildings took about four years.

HMM!

 

Macro Mondays - 6/15/20 - "Label"

 

Macro Mondays topic 'In a Bottle'

I thought of Vintage Recycling - Glass bottle with milk in it and a paper straw - Simples.

Faculty of Science & Graduate School of Health Building,

Lining the walls around the tops of the stairway are thousands of mosaic tiles, which were sourced from Spain.

 

Building 7 features a large green roof which provides insulation & also stormwater collection.

All water collected on the building’s roof, gardens, and paved areas is recycled for use in irrigation of the green roof and Alumni Green area.

A 27,000 litre rainwater tank provides water for the rooftop garden and the toilets.

The ventilation system has been integrated with natural cooling system to reduce energy consumption by up to 20%.

 

A 220 seat Super Lab stretches 52m across the building, and can run up to 12 science classes at one time.

Its the first of its kind that features full wireless connectivity.

There are also specialist lab & research facilities found throughout the building.

Also, in a corner of the building is a brightly coloured lime-green lecture theatre that holds up to 200 people.

The green auditorium features ceiling lights made from glass lab flasks.

 

We visited a private garden known as Nancyland! in Northeast Portland as part of today's story tours at the 2008 Garden Writers Association conference.

The big reveal. I've wiped all the glass gems and mirror pieces until they shine. There are a few little glue globs I need to scratch off when the grouts dry. Overall a satisfing experiment.

This is a piece of recycled glass. I've added a purple and blue dichroic stripe angled across the front. The base glass has a wavy texture to it. The glass is tested compatible and guaranteed to last many years. I've smoothed the back with my grinder, and then attached a sterling silver plated bail. This pendant will fit on any standard snake chain.

 

The pendant measures 1 1/8 in (29 mm) tall without the bail, or 1 1/2 in (39 mm) tall with the bail. It's 1 1/4 in (32 mm) wide and 1/8 in (5 mm) deep.

Apparently they still use recycled glass bottles for loads of fizzy drinks over in Thailand. I just wasn't so sure about drinking one of these but the weathered bottle cap was kinda interesting...

The NS open top hopper is a common sight for me as they are loaded in Grand Rapids MI on the Grand Elk with recycled glass that is then sent out here to be made into new bottles.
