Backgammon Set Made from Recycled Glass

We found this backgammon set at Sillice and thought it would be a cool gift for those that are fanatics of the game (you know who you are). Made by designer Sol Mesz in California, who we introduced a few years ago, the pieces are made from clear recycled glass windows and even a few broken windshields. Mesz says "Because I make my own colors for glass, I do not need to use industrially colored glass. As a result, the only thing I need is transparent glass, so I consciously choose to work in a sustainable manner." Mesz's pieces are one-of-a-kind and she also designs beautiful jewelry, sculptures and cool pieces for the home such as wine glasses, serving ware and dishes. ::Sillice
