Our journey to recycle scrap glass started in 2003 when I imported a book to build a glass kiln that is large enough to handle half of a stable door. Pieter Botes did the technical work to assemble the kiln. We were so novice that we used stainless steel sheets to fire the glass on at first. The result was quite interesting and over time we learnt on the go.
I experimented also with bulls eye glass and made pendants, which is still an ongoing concern.
Frit glass was the most interesting part of all the experiments and we make window pendants or garden ornaments by 'painting' with different colours of refined glass . We also produce tiebacks using frit or cut the different parts of the design out of glass. This is a tricky method as glass has its own way in the cooling process.
Glass platters, dishes and ornaments are created from scrap glass and frit glass into functional articles.
