Handblown Glass making
Glassblowing is a passion, it is all about timing. How long you heat, the time you have to shape the object before it hardens and knowing when to stop!
Our experienced studio glassblowers are known as Gaffers. They’re calm and focused and keep working. Even withstanding extremely high temperatures, they don’t lose concentration for a second and have a steady hand too.
Objet Luxe Glass vases and pendant lights are handmade and blown in the traditional way. It will last for many years and retain its original beauty with the minimum amount of need to clean. We recommend occasional wiping of the surface with a damp (not soaked) soft clean cloth or cotton wool and then blot dry using soft paper towelling and leave to thoroughly air dry. Only clean one item at a time, remove jewellery and rings that could scratch the glass during the cleaning process and never use detergents. If your glass has any metal mounts, avoid getting water in crevices where it may cause corrosion. Silver mounts may have been lacquered to prevent tarnishing, so avoid using solvents when cleaning.
