Glass blowing

THE WORKSHOP IS CLOSED

My husband Burkhardt comes from a very old glassblowers family in eastern germany. His family tree goes back threehundred years ago and all the males are listed as glassblowers. Until today this area is famous for glass production, especially the Lauscha Glass and its christmas tree decorations.

My husband was a professional glassblower for techniqual glasses, but now after his retirement he does it just for hobby. Sometimes we make things together …

…. like beadwork, tassels, quilts with glass embellishemts

Something very traditional: Light mills in glass balls. When the sun shines on them, the mills inside of the glass ball start to turn around.
