Filigrana glass is a combination of one or more colors of glass canes. The canes are picked up on the surface of the glass and manipulated and swirled. This creates a distinct pattern on the surface of the glass. Every piece produced is unique. The patterns can be similar but never identical.
Virginia selects the glass rods carefully to match in size, twist and pattern. The canes are held up in a metal mould where they are carefully oriented. They are preheated with a powerful torch, then Virginia then picks them up on the surface of the glass. She then manipulates and twists them to create a gorgeous swirl around the body of the cup.BTW, these glasses are multi functional and can also be used for a vase for your favourite garden flowers. Your Blue Filigrana Drinking Glass will come in a gift box with an artist card.
