Glass that we bring to the bottle bank, is sorted, cleaned and processed into new raw materials. The sorting and cleaning process of the glass fragments also produces glass grit. This grit is highly contaminated with ceramic, metal and organic particles, which makes it unsuitable for recycling into high-quality glass.
ENKEL GLAS is an investigation into a new, high-quality application for this waste glass.
A series of porcelain objects demonstrates the many possibilities of using waste glass in glazes. The designs show recognisable elements of glass packaging to reveal the origin of the glass.
