Recycled pre-consumer lead crystal glass
Fernando Miguel Marques collects postindustrial waste glass from Atlantis, the largest Portugese producer of lead crystal glass. Marques has developed a technique that allows the repurposing of the glass into tiles, panels, and other shapes. Recycled Crystal Glass may be used for architectural surfaces as well as decorative objects, and the fabrication process allows for partial staining or total vitreous-mass staining.
