Bright colour
convincing brilliance

Here Glashütte Lamberts has created a work of art with an identity unparalleled: No two sheets are identical.

Vivid colours of an inimitable brilliance add a special touch to this glass.

Production

As a molten gather, the substance later to be called „flash” is first brought to the blowpipe. Here the shape is instrumental in bringing about the appearance of the flash. A round balloon produces a uniform flash, a pearshaped gather creates a shaded flash, and small notches a torn flash. The molten carrier glass is then applied over the small gather and blown into a cylinder shape. During the process of blowing, the appearance of the flash is kept under control. After completion of the glass cylinder, the remaining stages of production are identical to those of the Clear and Coloured Glasses.

The shaping and colouring process of the flash requires deliberate control, experience and craftsmanship on the part of the glassblower.

Technique and Colours

Our illustrations can only give a faint idea of the effects of the glass and the play of colours – they should help you when choosing your individual sheet of Original Lamberts-Streaky-Glass. Identically numbered glasses have the same character with respect to the colour, texture and structure. The unique method of production, however, guarantees the differences which make each and every piece the only one of its kind.

Sheet sizes: approx. 60x90 cm (24" x 36")
Thickness: approx. 3 mm (1/8")

All the sheets are delivered with their edges still intact. Small variations in the dimensions occur due to the handmade production of the individual sheets. Special designs are possible from 20 sheets, please contacts us!
