Danielle Ruttenberg, Mark Ellis, Rebecca Davies and now the remark team came together to make glass, our mission is to make recycled glass useful and to do so skillfully.
Remark is a majority women owned studio, and a small team with local roots. With backgrounds in glass from local art schools, each founding member joined the thriving maker movement of high end craft in Philadelphia and eventually, we crossed paths and dreamed of forming an independent studio.
For Remark bottle glass is a challenge, an opportunity and a way to evolve the age old process of glass blowing to remove waste from our urban environment and lower the energy needs of a glass studio.
We have developed a process for recycled glass making that is locally sourced, energy efficient, and zero waste certified. We design to feature the variety in color, marking, shape, size, and intricacies of each bottle.
Each bottle is hand formed one at a time into crafted, useful and colorful pieces to be treasured in daily life- the opposite the mass produced single-use containers they once were.
Most of our bottles come from neighbors, friends, and local small businesses. We are always interested in making new connections if you tend to be a consistent drinker of anything in particular. Thank you!
