Made By Hand:
Our artistic process is steeped in the beauty and mystery of glass from start to finish. We begin by applying immense heat to a mixture of sand to create molten glass. Each individual piece starts as a precise amount of glass on the end of a blowpipe or rod. The piece takes shape as the artist manipulates the glass with light but precise touches. After a quick fire-polish, the piece is brought to room temperature slowly, over a period of days. Some pieces are finished using diamond wheel grinders and polishing stones.
Note: Each item is uniquely hand crafted and will vary slightly from the picture.
