A TRUE MASTERPIECE OF CRAFTSMANSHIP
The molten glass is first blown into a double-shell metal mould. Since objects are almost exclusively organic shapes, the objects cannot be rotated as in symmetrical moulds, which means that there are always two marks on the object. Depending on colour and cut, these marks can be visible in different ways. Bubbles that can form in the process as well as minimal inclusions of non-fused colour pigments are natural traces of the hand-craft and a sign of full colour glass. After the glass workpiece has been cooled down step by step over several days, the various grinding operations follow. This gives the GUAXS workpiece its individual structure & unmistakable character.
