"From The Ashes" Vase
handblown objects using waste glass
design by Studio PeiPei / Germany
“From The Ashes” glass range explores unlimited supply chains and production that incorporates waste with no value to anyone else. By using ashes from wood-fired restaurants, pizzerias, grills and barbecues, and seashells from seafood restaurants, the design studio replicates the roles of Sodium Carbonate and Calcium Carbonate in glass production.
The range is handmade without casting moulds making each object unique. All items are made with the studio own, ashes-shell-sand recipe, consisted of 40% waste for the lighter objects and a minimum of 80% waste for the dark-coloured objects.
How to recycle:
“From The Ashes” range contains harmless additives and it can therefore be grounded to sand and returned it to source closing the loop entirely. Sadly, that is not the case with the majority of other glass produced. Alternatively, the glass can be simply added to your recyclables.
