Our ornaments are considered Lamp-Working, done with a torch or crossfires, made from lead crystal and Pyrex tubing. Working with hand pulled colors . These colored rods are used to decorate the surface of the hot glass, then the piece is blown into an ornament. Lamp-Working is a glass blowing technique that dates back to the 16th century, when heat for softening glass rods was developed by blowing air through the flame of a wick lamp.
