Rather than taking marble or granite from the earth, Brenstone Recycled Glass Countertops uses readily available materials that would otherwise be sent to a landfill. Our products are composed of a formula that combines artistic glass, recycled glass with a binder of quartz, low V.O.C. resin binder & pigments. Our product is smooth like many highly polished granite products, and handmade in our local facility from locally sourced recycled glass. This process is an art, not a science, and it is possible that foreign matters can mingle with recycled items. Please note that this is what makes your countertop completely unique to only you. Our process also may not allow all air bubbles to fully escape the mixture during the drying process resulting in a unique surface. These small irregularities and variations should be seen as part of the recycled nature of the surface and only adds to its character.
