The Art of Mouth Blown Glass Lighting
Mouth blown glass lighting is an ancient art form that has been around for thousands of years. It involves heating glass to a molten state and then manipulating it using various tools to create different shapes and designs. One company that has taken this art form to new heights is one of our most unique brands – Bocci, a Canadian lighting design and manufacturing company that specialises in hand-blown glass lighting.
Bocci’s glass-blowing process is a combination of traditional techniques and modern technology. They use a team of highly skilled artisans who work in their Vancouver studio, and each piece is made entirely by hand. The process begins with a team of glassblowers, who heat the glass to a molten state and then blow it into moulds or free-form shapes.
Once the glass has been blown into the desired shape, it is left to cool for some time. After it has cooled, the glass is cut, sanded, and polished to remove any rough edges or imperfections. The final step is to add the lighting component, which is done by a team of skilled electricians who work to ensure that each piece is functional and safe.
One of the unique aspects of Bocci’s glass-blowing process is the use of multiple layers of glass. This technique allows them to create stunning pieces with a sense of depth and complexity that is not possible with a single layer of glass. They also experiment with different colours, textures, and finishes to create a range of unique lighting designs.
Bocci’s commitment to craftsmanship and attention to detail is evident in every piece they create. Their hand-blown glass lighting is not only functional but also works as a piece of art in its own right. Whether used in a home, office, or public space, their lighting designs are sure to make a statement.
