Have you ever heard of ‘the Dumpster Project’? It is a project created by environmental studies professor and dean at Huston-Tillotson University in Austin, Texas, Dr. Jeff Wilson. On February 4, 2015, Professor Wilson has moved to a dumpster container where he plans to stay for about one year. In his words, the Dumpster Project is ‘an experiment to test the absolute limit if you can be happy and healthy in a very small space’. Not only. According to the project website the purpose of this experiment is to experience an eco-friendly lifestyle that could bring benefits to a planet where the population is steadily increasing and living space decreases more and more year after year. In this regard, while the average dimensions of an American home are about 2,480 square feet, minster Wilson’s brand new house is 33 square feet big.

It is true that Professor Wilson will be living in a container for a year, but what is also true is that this container is modern and fully furnished. Indeed, it features solar panels to generate electricity, high efficiency toilets, a weather station, air conditioning, a sloping roof, locks and a mailbox. Of course, Wilson is not suggesting everyone to live this way, but it is proving that it is possible to live in smaller spaces. Moreover, through the Dumpster Project, his main goal is to encourage debates on sustainable way of living.

Using Bronze Alloy to Lift Affliction

For thousands of years, copper and its alloy bronze were made at the service of war, construction, furniture and industrial components. However, bronze can also be use for the service of inner peace. An impressive example of this application is the great Buddha Statues of China. In 1993 was inaugurated one of the tallest Buddha statues in the world: the Tian Tan Buddha, in Hong Kong.  The statue, on top of a 268 steps stair, lifts its left hand in the sign of removing the affliction and keeps its right hand in a giving gesture of generosity.

The exterior of this more than imposing Buddha statue is composed almost exclusively of bronze plating. Indeed, this sitting Buddha was builds from about 202 bronze pieces and is support by an impressive steel frame. The total structure of the Tian Tan Buddha weight over 250 metric tons. The statue, tall of more than 110 feet, is renowned to be seen as far as Macau.

The bronze alloy plates of the statue give its impressive and memorable shininess.  A long lasting reminder of the great possibilities that occurs when faith, engineering and ambition work hand-in-hand.

The Stained Glass Industry Needs Copper Foil

The art of stained glass as existed since the Antiquity. One of the most famous and ancient usage of copper for artistic glass was done by the Egyptian. The glass craftsmen of Ancient Egypt use copper to give a bright and beautiful green and blue tone to the pieces.

During the 19th and 20th century that copper was added to the work pieces of religious glass art.  To obtain a dark red, crimson like effect very high concentrated copper was including in the glass staining process. This process allowed the early Christian glass stained craftsmen to perform their art in order to create the masterpieces of their time.

Nowadays, artisans, artists and craftsmen of stained glass use a different kind of copper to embellish their pieces. Copper foil tape is now applied directly to the glass, allowing artists to get more flexibility in the shape and taint of the material. Indeed, by changing the chemical composition of the alloy, the copper’s color can go from a pale grayish tone to a dark crimson red.
