Lamberts. The glassmaking company.
Glass with a soul

Lamberts-Glass is glass with a soul. We are the only manufacturer in Germany who still uses traditional methods to produce window glass: Mouth-blown glass is worked into flat panels in a complex procedure. We even manufacture coloured glass, so-called ‘streaky glass’ or ‘flashed glass’, by hand.

Our manufacturing methods result in glass with a specific structure, making it particularly suitable for use in historic preservation or glass art. Whether it’s the magnificent windows of the Dresdner Frauenkirche or modern glass artworks in the Rockefeller Centre - Lamberts Glass adds a special touch to old and new buildings alike.

Traditional production methods
with passion

With a workforce of around 70 employees, our glassmaking company produces Lamberts-Glass in our factory in Waldsassen by hand, using a complex process. Glass is first smelted from sand, soda and lime, then coloured and finally blown into balloons. These are made into cylinders which are then reheated in the oven and finally formed into sheets.

The effort is well worth it, since this method results in the production of glass with unique properties: Small air bubbles and an uneven surface form an ideal basis for historic preservation work as well as glass art. We are not only bound by tradition but also by sustainability: We obtain our materials locally and continually invest in the improvement of our processes and our technical equipment.

Customer satisfaction
What counts

I have been using Lambert’s glass for over forty years and in five continents. Lambert’s produce the most beautiful glass in the world, the most varied in range and the most artistically sympathetic to the poetry of the medium.
Brian Clarke, London 2020

The Lamberts master glass blowers have preserved the noble tradition of making window glass with soul. Given that industrial flat glass has become a "non-material" in our buildings since World War II, it is a pleasure to create colored glass art with a material specially crafted by the manufacturer that has a unique character and is characterized by its properties to play with light and color.

Because I only use a limited amount of glass colors, I show the viewer the beauty of glass in its purest state. I would like to express my gratitude to the glassmakers for their care for the craft and the quality of their work.

No other sheet glass possesses the ability to radiate daylight so brilliantly.
Romi Fischer, Artist

These handcrafted Lamberts glass sheets are the most beautiful in the world. They are simply the best material a stained glass artist can get.
Sarah Hall, Artist

My stained glass work would only be half as effective without the expressive Lamberts opaque glasses and their variety of colors. The charisma that could only be achieved with these glasses was missing.

Time has stood still, and centuries of tradition have found a way to meld seamlessly with modern innovation…a magnificent sight to behold, these were my initial thoughts when first I visited Lamberts glass manufactory in the early 1990s. At Lamberts, a kaleidoscope of colors of the highest quality hand-blown glass can be found. As an artist who treats glass like a canvas, working with Lamberts glass panels bring my artwork to life, making them glow like never before.
Mahbuba Maqsoodi, Artist

Colored light so sensuous and rich it will carry you away. Why design with your hands tied? Lamberts double flash is a gift from God via Waldsassen.
Guy Kemper, Artist

I work with Lamberts glass because I think quite simply this glass is most beautiful material on the planet. The sublime and flashed nuances in Lamberts glass are exquisite and move from the realm of traditional craft into what I see is the threshold of greater mystery. I love the rainbow potential for color. The energy and movement, especially in the streaky flashed glass produced directly in the furnace, has been an ideal starting point for creating the structure in my glass designs. Twice now when I have had the good fortune to take my students to Germany, we have visited Lamberts to see the amazing glass being produced. I so appreciate Lamberts hospitality.
Scott Parsons, Artist

If the material is as unique as Lamberts glass, then this supports the artistic process in a special, even essential way!

Karl-Martin Hartmann, Artist

As an architect you sometimes think you can solve everything yourself – but it was really an excellent cooperation. Our idea was in very good hands and it turned out just as we wanted.

Lotte Soborg, Architect

For over forty years I have used Lamberts mouth-blown glass in my architectural art glass commissions. Of course there is an amazing and extensive array of colours and types of glass to chose from but definitely a favourite in their standard line, which I have used extensively, is the 'stormy' opaque white and clear glass. It is a very particular glass with unique qualities that suits my needs in many ways; very adaptable for light control as well as a being great base for a variety of glass treatments. Placing a sheet of Lamberts glass on the table and cutting off the soft edges has almost become a ritual for me.

Alexander Beleschenko, Artist

As an artist, I have hundreds of different, brilliant colors and glass qualities to choose from when it comes to hand-blown Lamberts glass. I also know that the colors are lightfast for centuries to come, so I can guarantee my customers that my work will remain just as brilliant decades later shine like day one. That's why I use Lamberts glass for my glass work.

Celia Mendoza, Artist

Much of contemporary architecture emphasizes the honest expression of materials and a design approach that is responsive to the site. The inherent beauty and workability of Lamberts mouth-blown glass make it possible to extend those same principles to my installations of architectural art glass.

Paul Housberg, Artist

It is our mission to honour the past and embrace to future by creating timeless new stained glass designs and glass applications by using the traditional techniques and materials. Lamberts’ mouth-blown glass is indispensable in our projects! It inherits the same spirit. The beauty of this glass is timeless, dynamic and the key to happiness and success in every stained glass creation!

Katrien Mestdagh, Artist

Colored light are so convincing as a metaphor for all that is good and lovely in this world. It is truly a transformative material. Lamberts glass is undeniably gorgeous. It is already stunning to behold before i even touch it myself . I have been using Lamberts glass for my entire career. It's very receptive to all the ways in which i seek to manipulate glass.
Judith Schaechter, Artist

I am happy that I have been able to work with glass as a material for 30 years. The hand-blown Lamberts glass is my favorite carrier for my creative thoughts and pictures in glass. The colored overlay gives me the opportunity to create structures, depths and shapes using the etching technique. The luminosity of the colors and the structures in the glass support the implementation of a design in glass - excellently.
Rahmi Schulz, Artist

Very ambitious work is possible using colored flashed glass. The flashed layer can be processed by etching with hydrofluoric acid. The Lamberts glassworks in Waldsassen in the Upper Palatinate produces it in high quality and with a wide range. I use this glass in all my work. There is no substitute for it, anywhere in the world. My projects could not have been realized without the glass from Waldsassen.
Karl Heinz Traut, Artist

Lamberts mouth blown antique glass is without doubt the most beautiful hand made glass in the world.

Martin Donlin, artist

Glass is my passion - there is hardly any other material that shapes itself so wonderfully.

It feels more like a very high quality brocade to wrap yourself in. The luminosity and brilliance of the colors guide me through the artistic design and implementation of the glass art.

Anyone who has ever inspired people with this material will understand why Lambertsglas can be a life's work.

Katrin Engel-Meyer, artist

I have been using hand-blown Lamberts glasses for 57 years. The quality of the traditional production, as well as the brilliance of the colors are unique in the world.

Every delivery of the special flashed glasses from your glassworks is always a special and exciting experience for me.

Fritz J. Dold, glass painter

Lamberts’ glass is simply beautiful. Each sheet is unique, and the brilliance and richness of the glass are exceptional. I love the colour, colour variations and subtle movement in each sheet which create an ever-changing quality of light and continually transform a space.

I was lucky enough to visit Lamberts’ Glass and see the skill of the master glassblowers first hand. It is a process and sight to behold. Thank you, Lamberts, for creating the most gorgeous glass!

Grace Ayson, Artist

Painting with glass is painting with light.

The painting surface glass seems immaterial. The hand-blown glasses from Glashütte Lamberts are exceptional. In a unique way, they offer the irrepressible light a forgiving membrane through which it is able to communicate with us in a wonderful way.

Thomas Kuzio, Artist

I absolutely depend on Lamberts glass in my work. I use a great deal of acid etching in my windows, and I have long considered Lamberts flashed glass extraordinarily good for this purpose, with its thin, workable flash and its subtle shift of tone across the sheet. And then, of course, the range and beauty of colour is unsurpassed. I also enjoy memories of the dramatic and atmospheric Glassworks at Waldsassen, which enrich the experience of using Lamberts glass.

Tom Denny, Artist

The hand-blown Lamberts glasses breathe. Every single glass has a soul and holds numerous secrets. Discovering these and including them in the artistic design process is extremely attractive. The diverse colors of the glasses ignite a wonderful magic and exude a joyful energy. Working with this material as an artist is wonderful. Through various etching processes of the overlay, my brushwork could be tactilely displayed on the glass. Dealing with the Lambert glass is like painting with light. In my 24 square meter glass painting "Celebration of Life", which was developed from 120 glasses of Lambert glass, color sound spaces have emerged that captivate the viewer and amaze.

Ursula Jüngst, Artist

I first became aware of the wonderful qualities of Lamberts Glass when I was a student, at Swansea, after visiting so many iconic pieces of glass in Germany, all using this glass so expertly.  At the first opportunity, for my first two public art commissions in the UK, I turned to Lamberts who, to my delight, agreed to make colours to my own specification just for these commissions. I particularly love to use the double flashes and the subtleties of the opalescent glasses.

Catrin Jones, Artist

Lamberts mouth-blown glass is the best an artist can use. Lambert's reamy, opal, and antique are particular favorites that have inspired me over the years from the smallest painted detail to major architectural installations.

Ellen Mandelbaum, Artist

Centuries of tradition and many years of experience are irreplaceable when it comes to glass production.

Both make the Lamberts glasses light up, which is why I have been using them enthusiastically for over thirty years.

Gerlach Bente, Artist

Lamberts glassblowers are masters of their craft. Their incredible range of beautiful colours, with depth and sparkle, provides a wealth of opportunities for glass artists. Whether the glass surface is painted, etched or pure, Lamberts glass brings my works of art to life through light.

Helen Whittaker, Artist

As a color painter, I naturally love colors - colors as pigments, out of bottles and tubes, as radiantly luminous surfaces on pictures. The highest increase in color is colored glass – the light IN the color is unbeatable. And with Lamberts glasses you climb to the top of the color summit. With this color, the view into the distance and depth is breathtakingly beautiful!

Jörgen Habedank, Artist

Uwe Gellner

Daylight from the outside through glass painting penetrates into the interior of the room, can increase the power of the colors into something magical. It was something special for me to work on mouth-blown glass with amorphous characteristics.

Max Uhlig, Artist

I like using Lamberts mouth blown glasses because I know I can rely on the quality of their range. The variety of available hues in both pot-metal and flash glasses means I can design with confidence, knowing that the glass I need for any given project will be available. Lamberts glasses are so much more than just the colour. The refractive qualities make them a delight to work with.

Petri Anderson, Artist

Visiting Lamberts and selecting beautiful glass from their vast glass racks is one of my favourite things ever. The range of colours and textures makes the choosing very difficult. I love seedy glass and last time I was there I found a particularly beguiling blue-grey seedy flashed glass that sparkles like the sea I was depicting. The Master blowers are able to produce glass that is uniform in thickness and easy to cut - a gift for the stained glass artist. I can’t wait to return.

Rachel Mulligan, Artist

Even as a student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, I was looking for the strongest pigments and colors. When I first saw the hand-blown colored glasses at Lamberts in Waldsassen, it was like magic for me. Blue, red, golden pink, golden ruby, selenium orange... in the purest clear beauty, like jewels. From then on I dedicated myself to glass art and created great works of art all over Europe.

Tobias Kammerer, Artist

I’ve worked with Lamberts mouth-blown glass for over thirty years and I can still be reduced to tears on receiving a new delivery and holding it up to the light. It is without doubt my ‘go-to’ for colour. It’s brilliance, luminosity and refractive qualities are unsurpassed; while subtlety in tone and movement is there when needed. Whether it’s used in new or restoration work, painted, acid-etched or stained, there isn't a better quality of sheet glass out there. It’s a pleasure to handle and cut. I find the trick these days is to not be afraid of its beauty; to work with it while not compromising it.

It's so great because it's plastic. It's not just printed on it, it's a body. It's really great!

Thomas Bayrle, Artist

It is a feast for the eyes when the hand-blown Lamberts glass responds in lush colors under the light of the sun. Nothing else can! So it should now be seen, experienced and enjoyed by many passers-by! For that alone, the work - the time and effort of all those involved - was worth it!

Detlev Bertram, Artist

For nearly 45 years I have worked with Lamberts Glass. It still makes my heart throb! The wide range of visual organic marks of seeds and striations, bold and subtle color shifts along with tonal variation in Lamberts mouthblown sheet glass allow me to keep my designs full of life while being light and airy. I most enjoy working with Lamberts flashed glass thanks to its ability to accept layers of dimension and movement by utilizing various artistic processes. Blown sheet glass is in keeping with my artwork that is made with my heart, mind and soul with a connection to nature. It’s all about working with glass that reflects and transmit true color to spark an emotional experience with my glass designs.
