How is coloured glass made?
Producing coloured glass is an ancient craft that has seen rapid development over the last two centuries. State-of-the-art coloured glassware is usually made by ionisation. During that process, rare metals are melted along with the other ingredients for glass to lend it gemstone-like colours. A multitude of factors influence the final colour of the glass – a science in its own right. This is why each manufactory has its very own distinct colour palette.
What is cased glass?
Glasware made of cased glass does not consist of solid coloured glass, but of a clear inner layer and a coloured outer layer. To achieve these layers, a clear glass gob is dipped into molten coloured glass and then mouth-blown into shape.
When cased glass is cut or engraved, the clear layer emerges bit by bit, allowing for fine colour gradients. This is how a simple drinking glass can become the canvas of unrivalled craftsmanship.
Coloured glassware – add light and texture to your home
Coloured glass has been popular because of its mesmerising impact on entire rooms. A strategically placed set of coloured drinking glasses can transform the atmosphere of your interior significantly with a subtle yet enchanting play of light and sophisticated textures.
