History of Glassblowing

Glassblowing has a long history dating back to ancient Egypt. Glassblowing flourished in Europe in the Middle Ages and spread to all parts of the world over the centuries. Today there are still many traditional glass blowing workshops where artisans practice their craft and create unique works of art.


The technique of glassblowing

Glass blowing is a very complex technique that requires a lot of experience and skill. First, the glass is melted in the furnace and brought to a lump-like state. Then the glass is picked up onto the glassblowing rod and shaped by blowing and twisting it into the right shape. At Kent Leuchten, we rely on the traditional technique of hand glass blowing, in which the glass is processed exclusively by hand.
