Glassblowing is an ancient craft, shaping molten glass into functional objects for design and architectural applications. Long-lasting colors are achieved by adding various metal oxides to the raw glass batch. For example, cobalt produces blue while gold creates pink. Bendheim’s mouthblown architectural glass is produced by Glashütte Lamberts in Germany. Characteristics of this glass include the mild surface texture and occasional air bubble inherent to original handmade antique window glass. Bendheim offers more than 500 colors and designs from which to choose.
