Good Hair (From The Bottle)

Every day's a good hair day with artist Vawn and Mike Gray's luminous barrettes, hand-fused from crushed recycled glass. Gleaming with texture and color, the soft glow of the mosaic comes alive under light, beautifying more than your ensemble--each piece resourcefully transforms glass bottles rescued before reaching the landfill into a wearable work of art. Handmade in Florida.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

“We like to treat [the bulb] like the sun and use the light to its best advantage—to enhance and breathe life into the design. It’s always all about the light!”

Unhappy with the processes and materials involved with making glass—Aerosol spray cans, toxic glazes, energy sucking kilns, miles of bubble wrap, and mountains of Styrofoam peanuts—Vawn and Mike Gray developed a process to create kiln-formed, fused, recycled bottle glass pieces. The kiln they use in their Cape Coral, Florida studio is a super energy efficient, computer-controlled fusing oven, turning out the colorful handmade pieces that become functional little works of art for your wall.

We chatted with Vawn and Mike about where they gain inspiration for their quirky collection of nightlights. (Hint: funny panda YouTube videos made the list.) Read the whole story on our blog.

Comments about Recycled Glass Barrettes:

The clip is great! It's much bigger/longer than I imagined from the photo, but it works great with my thick and heavy hair! It's so hard to find a clip that can hold my hair, and this does it no problem :) it's gorgeous and I've gotten compliments on it every time I've worn it.

Service and delivery comments:

The product was delivered quickly and arrived safely. I was disappointed to look back to write the review and see the sale price has fallen even more- I could have gotten 2 on sale now for the price of 1 just a week ago!

    Comments about Recycled Glass Barrettes:

    I bought this for my sister-in-law. I had read other reviews and the clip is heavy. But my sil has beautiful, thick hair, and the clip works well for her. She is very environmental and loved that it is made of recycled glass. The clip was very pretty and she wore it every day after Christmas.

          Just perfect and beautifully made! The only drawback is they are a bit big for short hair...I got one as a gift and one for myself - we both love them!

          Package arrived faster than promised and even though they are made of glass, they arrived in perfect condition.

                  As this was a gift, I have no idea how comfortable it is to wear. I can vouch for the attractiveness, though.
