Behind This Design, Artistic Glassware Handmade Sustainably.
Glass art that is both beautiful and sustainably crafted by hand! Our team of talented fair-trade artisans mouth blow recycled glass that's collected from local recycling yards. Mounds of discarded bottles are delivered by the truck-load to our studios. This old glass is separated, cleaned, and crushed; then shoveled into large kilns where temperatures reach up to 1500*F. Once the molten hot glass is of proper consistency, it is then blown into our signature designed molds. The vibrant colors found in these glass masks is achieved by adding specific dyes during the heating process.
The dye naturally takes shape and spreads through the mask freely, no 2 hand blown glass faces will ever exhibit the same exact arrangement / pattern of color.
