Mexicans love glass, “cristal.” They have been recycling glass long before it became fashionable. Soda and beer bottles and melted down and repurposed to create glasses, vases and other household items. I am especially fond of the glass cocktail stirrers and picks. You can find all kinds of fruits and vegetables, especially limóns (limes), cherries (cerezas), and watermelons (sandías). I have a scanner with a removable lid that allows me to capture three dimensional items. Many of the scans are jumping off points for my art.
