A Touch of Glass

Lamberts flashed glassToday I feel like a kid in a candy store (or a sweet shop as we called it in the UK)! We’re placing an order for handmade mouth blown glass made by Lamberts in Germany, and we have the nearly impossible task of choosing from their range of approximately 5000 different colours and types. For those who haven’t experienced mouth blown glass it is characterized by outstanding transparency and vibrancy of colour. As it is a hand made product, the density of colour often varies throughout the sheet diversifying the range of hues even further.  There are certainly some nice types of machine made glass available, but in my opinion, there is nothing that can match the traditional glass blowing techniques.
