Glass bottles, tossed into the recycling by most, make the perfect material for many glass artists. Using everyday items to make elegant stained glass pieces, these panels are anything but ordinary.
Alison Fox has an eye for creating gorgeous stained glass windows.
She started with traditional stained glass work and began to utilize materials that were reusable and recyclable. With discoveries she unearths from flea markets, antique shops and discarded materials, she repurposes glass bottles, broken dishes and vintage glass, compiling them into collages. Specifically placing the objects in patterns or laying them out to resemble images, she turns them into stunning presentations.
The pieces are fused using copper foil and then the panels are soldered. She also uses old window frames to display the glass assemblies. The results are impressive, original designs that beg to be placed in a sunny spot.

Another glass artist who uses repurposed and found objects is Kent Sandy Larsen. Using discarded items and dumpster treasures, he applies his knowledge of mosaic art and techniques to create astounding works.
Textured and dimensional, his pieces show the details of each added object while becoming a connected and beautiful display.
