Discarded Glass Bottles Recast Into Quirky Lamps [Pics]
Artist uses old plastic bottles to create practical art at its best.
Instead of recycling glass bottles the traditional way, Azusa Murakami and Alexander Groves of Studio Swine found a better use for them. They heated beverage bottles and re-blew them into unique bulbs that vary in shapes and sizes, and featured these new glass forms on their “Stand Light” floor lamp. This environmentally-conscious technique requires a small amount of energy and is a way to reduce carbon footprint while creating new design objects.
