After I saw Cindy's shot a few weeks ago, I had to try it, too. Hers is infinitely awesomer.

Blue bottles on a bicycle wheel. Built up with Papercrete. Papercrete is like working with papier mache.

Broke up 3 large wine bottles in a dark green then tumbled for a day with a little sand and water. Painted thin-set with metallic green.

Thin-set grouted yellow tile. Then painted copper.

Theres nothing quite so relaxing as seeing and hearing the rain pelt against the window panes and on the tin roof (rusted!).,To recreate the impression of beads of rain upon a window, they hand press the recycled glass. Recycled glass raindrops complete

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

I am trying this phalaenopsis in Growstone GS2 made from recycled glass. Most of the people use the larger GS1 Growstone.

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.

Tressa Luella Schaefer was born in Minnesota in 1896. She eventually ended up in Southern California, where she created a whimsical assemblage of structures and sculptures built out of recycled glass. Tressa died in 1988 and soon afterwards, her folk art "village" was badly damaged in the Northridge quake. Listed on the National Register, Grandma Prisbrey's Bottle Village is under active management and protection by a nonprofit organization.

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.

Recycled Glass Pendant

ODC2 - Our Daily Challenge - Tabletop Photography.

 

I was trying a new set up and had the recycled glass bottle ( which I only bought yesterday, grrr) and some marbles on a mirror. I wondered how the marbles would be distorted through the glass bottle, but when I dropped the marbles into the bottle the bottom of the bottle broke away! So this is what I got - I was determined that the bottle would be used for at least one shot!!

Hello flickrland!

This is porous cement made of recycled glass. Pretty cool.

a few happy recycled glass jars in their gleeful winter jackets

a little how-to upon my blog

 

Recycled glass discs from Happy Mango Beads; Mykonos heart charm from Stinky Dog Beads.

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.

porcelain, stoneware glazes, recycled glass

 

I am particularly pleased with this one as I found the bisque bowl in the garage, I forgot about it in the move over 2 1/2 years ago! it is about 6inches across

My peacock was initially made on mesh and then glued to a cement sheet board

(505 mm x 350 mm) (22" x 14")

i have some cute little repurposed glass candles made from recycled glass now available in my shop.

I didn't set out to do a series on gas stations this trip - it just worked out that way. Anyway, BP built this station a few years ago as a model for future, "green" gas stations. It's taken a fair amount of flack for being a "green" gas station, but it was made with recycled glass (for the pavement) and metal panels. Also, the solar panels on the roof of the station provide more than enough electricity to power the station, most days.

 

Alas, BP has been distracted with larger problems of late, so they rebranded this station as an ARCO and halted all further development of these "designer" gas stations.

This tumbler is made from 100% recycled window glass by the Aurora Glass foundry in Oregon, which is a non-profit organization that provides assistance to homeless and low-income people. A portion of your purchase goes directly to their wonderful charity. My husband and I sandblasted my original artwork onto this glass in our home studio, and it's initialed on the bottom by myself.

 

This is the perfect size for a cocktail, egg nog, spiced cider, or juice for kids. It's extremely thick and sturdy, and microwave and dishwasher safe. The clear color has a bluish-green tinge to it and lots of tiny bubbles from its recycled glass content. There will be some variation in shape and size, since these glasses are each handmade.

 

Approx. 4.75" (11.5cm) tall; 2.5" (6cm) wide at base; 3" (8cm) wide across top; holds about 8oz. of your favorite beverage.
