If you're a long-time reader of this blog, you know that Bedrock Industries is one of my favorite places and I seldom go to Seattle without trying to squeeze in a visit. My garden and house are full of treasures from this magical place. See previous posts here. During my last visit, Bedrock's building had been sold and they had to be out by January of this year. Fortunately, they found a location just across the street but it is a smaller space so their production area is now in a separate location. It seems that the entire block might be sold to a developer who plans to build a mini storage facility so there may be another move in the cards.
One of the really groovy things about Bedrock is that all of their materials are recycled. They've saved literally tons of materials from landfills.
These cool Italian light fixtures come in three sizes. I fell in love with them a year or so ago and bought one of each intending to put them on the ground but they look just fine hanging in the greenhouse instead.
If you're one of those people who seems to come home from a walk with a pocket full of rocks, shells, cones or whatever happens to strike your fancy as being interesting, you'll love Bedrock!
Buddhas lost their heads but they can be easily glued back together. However, I like the head in hands look even better.
If you like to create things with interesting materials or buy fab stuff that's already been created, you'll find something to tickle your fancy here.
The Seattle Seahawks, a football team, are very popular right now.
Dia de los muertos coasters.
In the spirit of the season.
Hmm, what could we do with these? They'd be cool on the chest of a mosaic mannequin.
The owner, a fabulous mosaic artist, is working on this glass on glass piece. It'll look beautiful hanging on the wall, in a window or used as a table top.
Love this idea! Wouldn't it be a great back splash, bathroom wall or counter top?
Here's what it would look like grouted.
So many possibilities.
This would make a great outdoor shower or indoors too for that matter.
There's always new stuff coming in and you never know what you'll find.
Looks like Glass eye recycles their failures here.
Great cloches formerly light fixtures.
A creative paradise!
This also makes lovely and unusual mulch for potted plants.
Big crush on these!
Speaking of the glass eye. There must be a story but I always forget to ask.
Glass doesn't always have to be shiny and bright.
Quite a fun visit even though the rain continued pouring on and off. A stop at Bedrock always gets my creative juices flowing.
