Vases Made from Glass, Concrete and Sand

100% Sand is a project by recent graduate Anabella Vivas that investigates if and how the process of design can benefit by using natural elements during creation. Wanting to seek a balance between the materials, Vivas chose to mix a concrete with sand and combine that with glass. Overall, each piece is 60% concrete and 40% glass.

By using the most amount of sand possible in the concrete mix, Vivas was able to blow glass onto it because of the slightly cooler than normal temperature, which kept the pieces together. Each piece is handmade, showing a story through its texture and appearance.
