Since about one year, we experiment with aesthetic and practical potential of rubber granules from recycled tires. Why with granules from recycled tires? Mainly for two reasons:
- Used tires are a serious burden for the environment, and they are still not enough reused (still),
- Rubber granules are practical (although difficult to process) construction material.
Up to now, we have successfully made different doorstops, cup coasters, pin boards and even some pendants. To see our works, visit us on our Facebook page!
Every work we do by hand. We carefully mix granules with glue and put the resulting “pulp” to an appropriate mold – in this case it was an empty box of chocolates. After … hours of drying, cup coaster were ready!
