Aside from Dan Akroyds “Bag O’ Glass” skit on Saturday Night Live, and the scene from Jean Claude Van Dammes “Bloodsport” where they dip the fighters’ hands in wax, and then in broken glass (yeowch!)- finding a use for this often discarded stuff is TOUGH!
Enter: Readymade Magazine who have been having a competition (a real cool idea), for the BEST uses for broken glass. Check it out their GLASSPHEMY contest, at http://readymade.com/blogs/readymade/what-would-you-make-with-broken-glass-enter-the-glassphemy-contest/
Anyway, the hot-plate, pictured above, is something (its dated on the back) that I made when I was five! lol. Its still working, in one piece, and REAL easy to make- especially if you made a mosaic, more-skilled, pattern with an array of more interestingly colored glass.
Its simply glass set into wet plaster of paris, in a used chinese-food tray (as the mold). Uber-inexpensive too!
I’m not going to win, nevermind even coming in 78th place, but figured the idea was neat, and simple enough, to share, as this tiny house blog goes hand in hand with recycling.
Also- this memorial day weekend, I won’t be around as much, so I’ll pick up on the blogging, come tuesday. Have a great weekend!
