This beautiful jug is a unique creation made from crushed, melted and then hand blown recycled glass. Skilled Guatemalan artisans crush and then melt down broken discarded glass and hand blow the molten fragments into fresh recycled pieces.
COPAVIC (The Recycled Glass Cooperative of Cantel) was founded in 1976 in the small village of Cantel, Guatemala. Motivated to create jobs that would earn them a living wage, provide them with health insurance, and support their families, this worker owned cooperative took the initiative to apply for a small loan to purchase land and build their kiln and workspace. Four decades later, COPAVIC’s artisans continue to transform recycled glass into gorgeous glassware while maintaining their original vision of a livelihood free of exploitation and protecting the environment around them.
