We are proud to present a new range of glassware designed and produced exclusively by National Glass Centre, and University of Sunderland Glass staff.
The body-colour of each piece is created using a process called ‘casing’. This involves blowing a thin layer of coloured glass, into a gather of clear glass. This makes the vessel look like it is blown from coloured glass. The distinctive coloured lip-wraps are applied & formed separately, as are the feet.
All the glass in the range is completely ‘free-blown’, this ensures every piece is authentic to traditional glassblowing techniques dating back over 2000 years. Each piece was crafted right here in our Hot Glass Studio.
