GLASS BLOWING

Origin: Over 2000 Years Ago

This ancient craft, developed over 2,000 years ago, is at the heart of everything ARTĚL produces. Glassblowing involves using a blowpipe to inflate molten glass into a bubble and then manipulating it by hand, using wooden molds together with variations in blowing pressure, to achieve a desired shape.

The range of creative possibilities is astounding – including everything from tiny liqueur glasses to huge vases and bowls – and the quality and clarity of ARTĚL’s mouth-blown crystal is unsurpassed.
