Spring Pool Glass (春池玻璃), the winner of several national craft honors from 2012 to 2014, will showcase 12 sets of glass creations made of recycled glass at the Green Handcrafted Glass Exhibition, which is hosted and organized by the National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute in Nantou County.
Spring Pool Glass is devoted to promoting "green glass” by upcycling glass as new products and art sculptures. It takes discarded materials such as old LCD panels from manufacturers in the Hsinchu Science Park, sorts the glass piles by color and grade, and then mechanically grinds them down to rounded glass grains suited for the kiln.
Moreover, to further promote energy effectiveness, the company's corporate brand SEG replaced all of its gas kilns with electrical kilns in 2007, which can heat up to 1,500 degrees Celsius and make glass more crystal-like and glittery.
The Hsinchu-based glass producer founded over 30 years ago is also open to the public for visitors to learn about it glass-making handcraft. More information can be found at: http://www.hcspg.com.tw/.
