I SO Want This in My House!

I ran across an article about Vetrazzo in November's America Recycler.

When the City of Berkeley decommissioned traffic lights, they used the red lenses in a limited edition countertop.

Each countertop panel is made from 550 lbs. of crushed recycled glass from traffic lights, windshields and beverage bottles. The Millefiori pattern, pictured to the left, is made with salvaged glass from an art glassmaker, Millefiori.

In 2007, Vetrazzo transformed over 250 tons of recycled glass, including 125 tons not recyclable elsewhere, into beautiful, functional surface products.
