We started Other Supply Lab out of a love for ceramic craft and the environment.
The ceramic industry relies heavily on finite natural raw materials that are fast depleting. Worst still, the extraction of these raw materials leads to lasting negative ecological and social impacts. On the other hand, up to 63,000 tonnes of glass waste are sent to the landfill each year due to a lack of local infrastructure for glass recycling. For us, the first step to sustainable ceramic craft is to substitute the raw materials used. By seeing the large amount of glass waste as an abundant resource, our first launch converts glass waste into an alternative supply for making ceramic glaze.
