Hand-poured recycled glass dinnerware and giftware in eight luminous colors. I couldn’t resist purchasing two lavender bowls years ago in a gallery because they are just so beautiful, and I use them often as part of my everyday dishware. The business began in 1995 as a partnership between the Arcata Community Recycling Center in Humboldt County, California, and a group of local investors who wanted to develop an innovative plan for using crushed, recycled glass. The crushed glass is melted in furnaces, pigment is added, and the molten glass is pressed into bowls, plates, and glasses. A great example for other communities to follow.
