Beautiful and Smart: Smart Glass Recycled Art

Beautiful and Smart: Smart Glass Recycled Art

Amber Byfield
Dec 6, 2010

When the light catches it just right, glass can transform a room, taking it from dull to delightful with its varying degrees of transparency changing at every turn. Smart Glass Jewelry and the Home Collection by Kathleen Plate make the most of recycled glass bottles, turning them into sustainable pieces of art.

What a wonderful piece of art to display at home—the glass is hand-selected and then cut from recycled soda, wine, and even salad dressing bottles. While the home collection might be a little steep for some purse-strings, as they're offered only by commission, we'd settle for the handmade jewelry version (speaking of, what a great gift for an eco-conscious loved one!).

Based in Georgia, Smart Glass can be found traveling around for shows in the next two months.
