100% RECYCLED & HANDMADE

RECYCLED

Each item is sustainably manufactured from 100% recycled glass, embodying the environmentally conscious act of taking discarded material and turning it into something useful. This echoes the founding principles of the Eden Project, to transform and regenerate, exploring our dependence on the natural world and using that understanding to excite people into delivering transformation where they live.

HANDMADE

Locally sourced bottles and jars are sorted, crushed and heated in the furnace until molten. The glassmaker gathers, shapes then blows the molten glass into moulds to create the form of the object.  Air bubbles and colour variations will occur as a natural part of the process.

CORK

We agglomerated cork which is made by gluing fragments of otherwise wasted cork together and compressing them into the desired shape. Cork is the bark of the cork oak tree (Quercus Suber) and is typically stripped from a tree every 7 - 10 years. This is a very sustainable method of harvesting without damaging the tree it's removed from, and it is naturally renewable because it grows back. Furthermore, it is completely biodegradable, renewable and recyclable.
