GLASS WASTE

COLLECTION OF GILDED MIRRORS MADE WITH GLASS WASTE TO PRESERVE THE ÉGLOMISÉ TECHNIQUE.

The project

This project is part of the history of the gilded mirror by reinventing the shape and preserving the manufacturing process by updating the Églomisé glass techniques of the seventeenth century in France. The aim is to produce a collection of mirrors based on the tradition of luxury art objects, obtained through a recycling process and a sustainable approach in re-using mirror waste. The project brings together tradition, heritage, design and craftmanship while solving a problem of waste in the glass industry.
