Crossville has created Echo Recycled Glass by Crossville® – tile for walls, countertops and floors. Crafted by artisians using centuries-old techniques, Echo Recycled Glass captures, refracts, and bends light in a manner of sunlight playing on water. It is available in 15 colors, including white, black, and red as well as soft blues, greens, and ambers. It comes in three finishes: clear, iridescent, and a sophisticated frosted matte, and in five sizes: 1″ x 1″, 1″ x 3″, 2″ x 2″, 2″ x 4″, plus listellos.
With a recycled content of 10 to 70 percent, depending on color, Echo Recycled Glass is an exquisite addition to Crossville’s collection of recycled products, which include EcoCycle and Color Blox EC. Used alone or in conjunction with Crossville’s other recycled products, Echo Recycled Glass is a beautifully green alternative.
Designed by one of the industry’s most respected color forecasters, Barbara Schirmeister, the line has a clear, luminescent quality, which is extraordinary for recycled glass. “It is rare to find the beauty of cast glass in a recycled product,” says Schirmeister. “Specifiers and homeowners will enjoy mixing, matching and blending the colors and finishes to create stunning installations. They will also have the satisfaction that comes with using a product that is friendly to the environment.”
Created at the historic Peltier Glass Company in Ottawa, Illinois, exclusively for Crossville, Echo Recycled Glass is made with the same dedication to beauty and quality as was the glass crafted to Louis Comfort Tiffany, the Pullman Company, and Ford Motor Company in the factory’s early years. In the middle of the last century, Peltier gained recognition worldwide as the maker of prized game marbles and for this; it is best known. Today, these marbles are coveted by collectors, commanding top dollar at marble shows and on-line auctions. As a tribute to the heritage of Peltier Glass Company, each Echo Recycled Glass color name was inspired by Peltier marble names or by the game of marbles itself.
