Deanflowers vase is created out of mouthblown and handmade glass. Glass is a
real product of nature with a very long history and is a material that will
stay on existing, regardless the constant development of new artificial
materials. It is born out of nature’s fundamental elements : earth, water, air
main base of glass is sand, which is then combined with a mixture of soda, lime
etc… and some additions depending on form and color. When it reaches its meling
point at 1500°C glass looks like a red, glowing mass, resembling lava. That’s
when the master glass blower, by means of a hand carved wooden mould gives the
object its intended shape and color.
use of this wooden mould is a very primitive technique to create glass objects
and has to be performed by the skilled hands of real artisans. Each time this
mould is used, it burns out a little bit, thus giving each object its unique,
color to glass and experimenting with different techniques separately or
combined to achieve this is one of our main fascinations right now. You can for
example apply a double layer of color in a small oven specially made for that
small imperfections and bulbs you may encounter in a vase are a result of the
artisans working method and are a part of every object’s character.
Every Deanflowers product is
produced in the EU.
80 % of all Deanflowers glass is recycled.
