Decoration of hot decorated glass by cutting and polishing of large areas (called facetting). The final processing demands high precision intensifying the complete effect.
By cutting, very nice decorative effects can be achieved. The technique has been used for glass hot pre-shaped in the glassworks onto ”zoomorphic shapes” (various kinds of fish, pigeons, toucans, turtles, herons etc.). Due to the exclusively hand processing, each piece is an original and can be taken for an art piece. The given objects are counted among the top company products.
They are shaped by hands of glass blowers using wooden and iron tools directly at the furnace. Their characteristic feature is a massive appearance and distinctive colours. A combination of various glass masses gives interesting colour effects. Each piece is a reflection of the craftmanship of the glass blower.
