Fused Glass from Tropics of Costa Rica

In tropical Costa Rica, everything rusts, rots, or returns to nature.

Angelina, owner of Samara Organics recently lamented, “I wish I could find a basket that wouldn’t fall apart.”

So I made these 14″ diameter baskets out of recycled glass, left-over from construction projects.

They’re fun and functional.  Washable, anti-fungal, and non-rusting.  Perfect for the tropics.
