These glass cups are prime examples of the surprising beauty that can be achieved through upcycling--the process of transforming waste or surplus materials into beautiful and useful new objects. Glass artist Nanda Soderberg takes wine bottles bound for the recycling bin (or worse, the trash), and reshapes them into vessels that retain only a hint of their past lives. These two-toned cups are upcycled from the necks of two wine bottles which Soderberg cuts to size, heats in a kiln to make them pliable enough to reshape, and fuses green and blue sections into a continuous form. The resulting cups retain a fluidity that reflects the upcycling process, within a new design that’s comfortable in the hand and a distinctive addition to your barware. Handmade in Manchester, New Hampshire.
