Artisan Glass Blowing
In the city of Tonala in Central Mexico, we design and develop all of our glassware and art with talented artisans. Always fair-trade..
The artisans blow recycled glass that was collected from local recycling yards. Mounds of discarded bottles are delivered by the truck-load to our studios, the glass is then sorted, crushed, and heated in large kilns where temperatures reach up to 1500*F. Once molten hot glass is of proper consistency, it is then blown into a mold the colored dye is added during the blowing process while the glass is molten hot.
