Eco Info When glass is recycled, it is broken into small pieces called cullet. The broken pieces are crushed, sorted, cleaned, and mixed with other raw materials in the glass-making process. When glass is made from scratch, high temperatures are needed to melt all the ingredients. Since cullet melts at a lower temperature, so the more of it you add to the process, the less energy is required to melt it. Recycling glass is not only energy-efficient; it benefits the environment in other ways. Glass produced from recycled glass instead of raw materials reduces related air pollution by 20% and related water pollution by 50%. And, recycling glass keeps used bottles and jars out of landfills, thereby decreasing the need for them.
Artisan Story Artisans use time honored methods and simple carving tools to individually carve each set of unique wooden hands. Additionally, each glass bowl is molded over the hands that will hold it, resulting in a one-of-a-kind fit.
Please Note Please note that natural variations in the wood will result in a unique and one-of-a-kind sculpture, therefore your product may vary slightly from the product pictured.
