This recycled glass dish was made by Naomi Berg of Transformations Glassworks. Please visit her Etsy shop at http://transformationsglass.etsy.com.

It is made from reclaimed scrap glass that Naomi collects from Portland-area glass shops, and then fuses and slumps in her studio.

It is food-safe and dishwasher-safe. Do not use in an oven or microwave.

This unique dish is both artistic and functional, a beautiful addition to every home! It may be used as a dish to display or serve appetizers or sushi. It may be used as a soap-dish, or even as a decorative centerpiece for your table or altar.

5" x 5" (12.7 cm x 12.7 cm)


__________________________________________________________
Trillium Artisans is a nonprofit community economic development organization that supports low-income crafters in the city of Portland, Oregon, USA, who create handmade items using a minimum of 50% recycled or reclaimed materials.

Naomi Berg of Transformations Glassworks has spent much of her adulthood working with youth - as a volunteer working with children from families experiencing domestic violence, as a tutor to at-risk high school students, as an English teacher to French students, as a social worker at a shelter for homeless and runaway youth, and most currently as a mother to her son and daughter.

Naomi is also an artist at heart. She loves creating art in many forms - painting, drawing, writing, knitting, cooking, crafting with her kids, dancing, drumming and so on. When her second child was 1 1/2 she began to experience some full-time-mama burn-out and decided that she needed to put her basement to good creative use and thus began her journey into glass fusion. She took classes at various Portland area glass studios, and then unable to find anyone local who worked with recycled glass, she did lots of online research and spent many hours in her glass studio learning how to fuse window, or "float" glass scraps.

Naomi spends the majority of her time as a home-schooling, urban-homesteading mama. She is passionate about the growing of edible and non-edible plants, the cycles of the seasons, about living and loving consciously, and about transforming glass scraps into functional beauty! Born and raised in Oregon, Naomi currently resides in SE Portland with her family.
