Over at Readymade magazine they like recycling. No, they really like recycling! So they were asking, “What would you make with broken glass?” They even have a contest in conjunction with Macro-Sea, they are putting on a contest. But first a bit about Macro-Sea and where they fit into this. They are a design firm that started converting dumpsters into pools in Brooklyn, NY. That caught on quite a bit so now they’ve come up with Glassphemy, a psychological glass recycling center. You go there and hurl your glass bottles against bullet proof glass to relieve some of the pent up frustrations you may be acquiring in your day to day life. The broken glass is then recycled. Certainly sounds interesting. So think about what you would make with broken glass. Check out the lamp made with a jar and some broken glass. Pretty cool…

    I love this lamp…any chance on a tutorial? We are getting ready to PCS (military move) from Guam to Japan and in the packing process, some of my late grandmother’s carnival glass was broken and I’d like to recycle it into a piece of art.

    Let me see what I can come up with. It looks like it would be a great project.
