Katherine Gray, a glassblower and artist, is no stranger to the fact that glass never biodegrades. Actually, it keeps lying in the landfills and – with no visible signs of decay – pollutes our environs. Therefore, with her intent to impart the same with usability and an artistic value, she creates amazing artworks out of discarded glass she finds at thrift stores on eBay or in junkyards. Just recently, she utilized 2,000 found drinking glasses to fashion a beautiful installation called Forest Glass. The installation, which you can access at the Corning Museum of Glass website, features three glass trees stacked on Plexiglas shelves.
According to the website, Forest Glass installation aims to recompense trees for destruction caused by “the material, i.e. glass that destroyed them.” The multi-colored installation features green leaves and a brown trunk to get as closer as possible to living counterparts you see around you.
