a site 2 see friday: Recycled China
From the website:"Recycled China is a design team consisting of artists Thomas Schmidt and Jeff Miller. During the factory production of ceramic products, there is on average a 4% loss rate; items which in one way or another are imperfect and therefore do not reach the market. Once fired, ceramic materials are no longer usable and simply end up in landfills around the world. As an alternative to using mined materials, Recycled China is about reusing ceramic waste and other industrial waste into the form of architectural tile, functional design works, and sculptural objects.
