FLASHED GLASS ORNAMENTS
Flashed Glass is the process in which a molten colored glass is layered onto clear glass then blown into a shape or pane. The colored glass can then be cut away to reveal the clear glass. Flashed glass used to be an inexpensive alternative to a solid color because it used less colored glass by simply covering the clear. Today it is the opposite as the techniques to make and cut flash glass are very laborious and technical.
Our Flashed glass ornament collection is truly a work of art! Each piece is cut out by hand then ground to shape. After the shaping, the patterns are cut into the glass. The cutter must work carefully as each piece is difficult to see through. The piece then heads to the polishing wheel where again, careful hands polish each cut.
