Pushing the boundaries for what is expected from products, the Debbie Wijskamp ‘Black Ruby Pebbles’ series is made from an unlikely material. These pots and bowls were created by the Dutch designer Debbie Wijskamp using rubber pellets left over from car wheels. In making the series, Wijskamp was inspired by the notion of using everyday objects in unusual ways.

The knobby surfaces of the dishware make it appear to be made of small rocks, hence the collection's title. The process of making the series is described on Wijskamp's website as developing a new way of working with the material stating that she created: "small 'pebbles' as 'buildingblocks' for this collection." The Debbie Wijskamp Black Ruby Pebbles series provides new possibilities in design at it salvages old tires to make an eye-catching collection. Stats for Recycled Tire Pots Trending: Older & Mild
