“Remark Glass” is their company that creates dinnerware and kitchen ware using recycled bottles. They also work with clients outside of the company. Some things they do are fabrication, cold working and glass blowing. My fourth day, I worked on a piece for one of their clients. There were 8 large pyramid shapes made of 3 mirrors. Previously, they “bedazzled” parts of the mirror with Swarovski crystals using a non-permanent adhesive (because the client wasn’t sure if she wanted the crystals to be permanent or not). The client wanted the crystals taken off and reapplied with a permanent adhesive as she had made a decision for the crystals to be permanent. I took the panels off that the crystals were attached to, scraped the excess off the mirrors with a razor blade, then cleaned the mirrors with windex and denatured alcohol.
