One of our last eco-gift suggestions is a recycled glass and pottery clock from Washington-based Paloma Pottery. Founded in 2000, the company and its artists combine broken recycled glass into pottery to develop one-of-a-kind pieces. Artists use traditional pottery techniques and then add broken pieces of recycled glass into the kiln to melt. The crackle glass surface is smooth to the touch. Other textures and designs in the clay are achieved with natural objects, such as impressing or drawing with rocks or shells, for a natural design, according to the company.
The clock was $49 but is now $42.50.
