There is more to handblown glass than just the end product. The beauty is in the process and creation. Each piece starts as sand and other chemicals and is heated to over 2000 degrees. The colors and accents are added to the pieces at this temperature. Every single piece is created one at a time through age-old Venetian techniques, precise marks, and brute strength. The pieces are then cooled slowly to room temperature to prevent shattering, carefully cut, and polished to perfection.
