Glass and Nature

Discarded bottles provide the perfect medium  - 100% pure, natural silica sand – transformed by the glassblowers breathing new life, into what is currently seen as waste.

Glass, Nature & Culture

As with our environment, each finished recycled glass product is unique, solid yet breakable, and must be handled with delicate care. The up-cycled glass forms are arranged into themes that invite the viewer to contemplate on the delicate balance between humans and nature.

Glass & Nature

As stewards of planet earth we have a responsibility to handle nature carefully. Analogously with glass, once broken, it is impossible to put it back together to its original state of exquisiteness.

Glass & Development

The cruise ship industry epitomises the quality vs quantity debate. Studies show the following negative impacts of the cruise ship industry on small island states:

  • low spending of cruise ship tourists
  • traffic congestion
  • damage to roads
  • emissions from ships
  • sun cream damage to reefs
  • stress on sewage systems
  • increased litter and waste
  • unknown imacts of dumping large volumes of food waste at sea
