Blue glass collector goes green with concrete

counterevolution recently installed this set of concrete kitchen countertops for a couple in Dayton’s College Hill neighborhood. The owners of this home, built in 1929, wanted to maintain the original English cottage-style aestetic, and elected not to replace the original cabinetry with its round-end peninsula. They chose to incorporate recycled cobalt blue glass in a concrete mix that included local river sand, and other recycled content. The countertops were the latest addition to their cobalt blue glass bottle, and vase collection that will decorate the completed kitchen.
