meet green janie
Meet Jane Marks-Hastig, a
green-minded artist who specializes in upcycling reclaimed glass. What does that mean? Jane uses salvaged, broken tempered glass and other discarded materials to create glass-on-glass mosaics and other functional art pieces.
She is especially recognized for her tree-themed artwork, in which she draws inspiration from the beautiful woods in Northern Minnesota.
Jane also offers a line of products that feature the beauty of broken glass, including the That's How I Roll My Dough pastry rolling pin, That's How I Glow Good Karma Mood Lighting for indoor and outdoor ambiance, and Broken-Glass Slippers for beautiful home or office accent pieces.
Heavy on whimsy, Jane's upcycled, repurposed work is a wink and a nod at nature and the world around us and a reminder to see the things we throw away in a different light—what would have been ugly trash becomes something that sparkles beautifully in the sunlight.
