In 2012 Lyndell Robinson started Vitre-Verte after retiring from the semiconductor industry as a process technician. Competent in processes from thin films to the needle trade Lyndell looks at ways to recycle and reduce waste every day. She encourages others to do the same and is always willing to share her processes with those curious and interested in her methods.

Lyndell started by making custom lanterns for marriages and social functions then found inspiration in many other mediums. Now products are made from recycled paper, corks, dinnerware, tin cans, CDs and plastic containers.

If you have a sentimental bottle that you're saving from your wedding or another special occasion would you like to see something on it other than dust? Or do you have sheet music you don’t want to throw away but would cherish as an ornament for the tree or give as a gift to a loved one?

Check out the photo gallery for lanterns made from bottles, faux vitrails using recycled glass and frames and other green creations. See her selection of tin can luminaries made from up-cycled cans. Vitre-Verte makes sun catchers from up-cycled CD’s  and re-purposed plastic containers with lots of glitter to catch the sun. These sun catchers will also stop birds from flying into windows while adding color.

Peruse the gallery with OOAK vintage ornaments made from music sheets and embellished with beads and ribbons to decorate the tree or window at Christmas time. Champagne corks are painted and add a bit of whimsy to any Christmas tree and can also be used as key fobs that float.

Vitre-Verte makes pique assiette style mosaic garden stones. Custom work is available but is seasonal for pouring cement.

Do you have an idea that you’d like to compliment your own décor or garden? Do you have an idea and would like to collaborate with an experienced artisan?
