Shattered fragments of shower screens are fused to create unique new forms and are firmly part of a circular economy where materials are reused in innovative and exciting ways. These lace like glass bowls capture and diffract light, their fire softened edges gleam. They are a great example of simple practices to create new products for a mindful consumer.
“Friends often arrive with scratched mirrors; chipped broken glass fragments and we find new uses for them. This experimentation sometimes leads to new a design developing, either in a sculpture or a product. I am interested in emphasising the qualities of a material, so in this case, simple forms to show off the delicate memory lines of fractures which have been healed by heat. As we are in the time of Covid, hand washing with soap is in focus, and we have a new soap dish design.”
Soap dishes fit into postcard sized boxes for shipping and measure 150mm x 100mm x 20mm.
