On the fourth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me,
four calling birds…
Has anyone else noticed that there seems to be a lot of birds in this song?
Well this time we have birds!
(Or designs of birds in the very least!)
Peregrine Glassworks, established in June 2018, is a local Cochrane business who is trying to be better. In fact, their whole business concept is built around trying to do better in this world, with a goal of recycling 1.5 million wine bottles - one for every person in Calgary.
Peggy & Hugh were married in Cochrane in 2004, but lived in Yellowknife until only recently, when Peggy was transferred back to Cochrane for work. Kids Jasmine (9) and Rowan (7) round out the creative crew, with sister-in-law Lina contributing on the digital design side of things.
“We are so thrilled to be creating in this entrepreneurial town. Cochrane is our home and we love this town!”, shared Peggy & Hugh.
Having modeled Peregrine Glassworks after 'Old Town Glassworks’ in Yellowknife, Peggy & Hugh saw an opportunity in Cochrane to upcycle bottles and sandblast them with iconic southern Alberta scenes, like the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
“We were drawn to the idea of hand-making functional, but beautiful items for the home. We make glassware and lamps from recycled beer/wine/soda bottles, and we also take custom orders for glassware with company logos, or for special occasions such as weddings, or sports events. In 2019, we hope to offer workshops, so people can come learn about the process and sandblast their own glasses to take home.”
