Creation of a Stormglass

 

 

   This is a very creative, time-consuming and technologically dependent process that takes place on many wonderful levels.

 

1. Design

    Our first step is to carefully consider how a new Stormglass will look.

2. Gathering materials

    The Stormglass is physically formed by two basic parts - the glass ampoule and the pedestal. Creating the Stormglass is an intricate process, comprised of several lengthy steps.

   Ampoules, crafted according to drawings and specifications, are made from a chemically resistant borosilicate glass.

 

    Hundreds of years of tradition and experience in Czech glass-blowing, outstanding quality control and their professional prowess in processing the perfect glass, provides us with creative and unique glass vessels and ampoules, of the highest possible quality.
