"This piece is made from 24% lead glass, which we melt in our furnace at 1160 degrees. The glass is coated with 3 different coloured glass powders while hot. The parison is then reheated to fuse before we add the stringers and frits to give the piece a unique design. The final piece is then sandblasted when cold to give it a velvety matt finish."
