bio glass BioGlass is a 100% Recycled Building Material
SkillBuilder-Glass
Using a combination of pre- and post-consumer content, BioGlass is a material that can be used for countertops, backsplashes, partition walls, staircases, and exterior cladding.

Coverings Etc makes the product in a proprietary process using the proper amount of heat and pressure to ensure its durability. The broken pieces of glass meld to form stunning textures on the surface. BioGlass is LEED certified, and includes zero fillers and binders.

I’d love to see a maker try to reproduce a material similar to this. Get yourself a kiln, frame up a countertop, and pour away!
