Chandelier Glass Blowing
Blowing any glass is a very skilled art. To free hand blow chandelier arms takes years to acquire this skill.
There are many types of solid and hollow arms and the experience of our craftsman ensures the closest possible match both in the quality of the glass and the shapes to which we have acquainted ourselves over many years.
The blowing depicted is of a rope 6/8 rib twist arm. Naturally our expertise extends to blowing any chandelier components.
All our glass for the U.K. market is blown to 32% lead crystal. Some countries now legislate against what is known as full lead and require a piece with all the quality but with modern day standards being adhered too. We accommodate these requests; to achieve the match of an old piece of glass the recipe is adapted.
Our glass can be blown from cullet or new metal with pigmentation added to achieve the best possible results.
Blowing into a chandelier mould
The mould is an instrument to assist the perfection of shape used by the glass blower. Our mould makers cast moulds to the client’s glass specification. We hold existing stocks of wooden, carbon and cast moulds and in many cases these can be utilized for restoration of chandelier components.
Where a suitable mould cannot be easily found we will cast moulds, which then become the clients property. Here we show our glassblower, blowing into a mould for a canopy to a chandelier.
