Soap's Best Friend

Give your bathroom or kitchen sink a colorful new companion with recycled glass soap dishes. These beautifully handmade soap dishes are kiln formed and fused from recycled glass bottles that are rescued before reaching the landfill. The chunky, uneven surface is ideal for soap, allowing air to get underneath and allowing it to dry between uses.

Handmade in Cape Coral, Florida by Vawn and Mike Gray.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Due to the handmade and recycled nature of these items, each is one-of-a-kind and will vary slightly.

“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 Soap Dishes:

    This is a beautiful piece but larger than I expected. We are using it as a decoration by standing it on end instead of a soap dish because of the size. Also, there are no feet or grippers on the bottom to keep it from slipping around. Because it is so beautiful (colors are very vibrant), it was well worth the money.

        Comments about Recycled Glass Soap Dishes:

        I bought this for my kitchen. I have a favorite olive oil-coffee ground-cinnamon bar soap that I love and wanted a beautiful soap dish that added some sparkle to the kitchen. The rough texture allows for air circulation around the bottom of the bar of soap so that it does not get slimy. If I could change one thing about the dish it would be to make it just a little bit bigger, but it is otherwise soap dish perfection!
