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.

Vawn and Mike Gray

For 20 years, Vawn and Mike Gray created and sold original lines of fine arts and crafts. But they were always haunted by the environmentally wrong processes and materials that were involved with it—Aerosol spray cans, toxic glazes, energy sucking kilns, miles of bubble wrap and mountains of Styrofoam peanuts.

In the Summer of 2007, while watching a world wide broadcast of the "Live Earth" concert, they were inspired to change their ways. On that weekend they launched Reborn Glass: Artful reminders To Conserve. Through diligent trial and error they developed a process to create kiln-formed fused recycled bottle glass pieces. The kiln they use is a super energy efficient, computer-controlled fusing oven, not at all like the energy-sucking kilns of the past. The relationship between the glass colors and our natural resources sparked even more inspiration for their projects. collection

    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!
