Bottlehood: recycled glassware

Beyond the wonky candle stuck into an empty bottle of Mateus Rose, there's a lot you can do with glass. Bottlehood, based in Colorado, recycles glass from its neighbourhood to produce eco friendly tumblers, vases, necklaces, platters and bowls,  making the most of the colours, shapes and labels to create items which are really quite beautiful. The tumblers come in sets of 4 with prices starting at $20 per set.
