When Jody Rogers was in the process of designing her family’s new home on Folly Beach, she didn’t want to go the traditional granite route for the countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms.
After seeing North Charleston-based Fisher Recycling’s Glasseco products, which feature custom-made hard surfaces using recycled glass and other items, at a local home show, Rogers realized she had an opportunity to have some “beachy” countertops in her home.
Rogers met with Elizabeth Fisher, vice president at Fisher Recycling, about finding a combination of glass and oyster shells to fit the color scheme. Fisher came up with the idea to add some of the shark teeth Rogers has found on Folly’s shores.
‘We couldn’t be more thrilled with our island and breakfast bar countertops,” says Rogers. “The island is the centerpiece of our room and is always a conversation piece when people see it for the first time.”
