Beautiful and exquisitely made glass figurines all crafted by hand
These figurines come from L'vov, Ukraine where they are made by master glass blowers, most having 15 or more years experience in the field. It takes a tremendous amount of skill and patience to produce these detailed figurines. These are made using the lamp-working technique where a torch is primarily used to melt the glass. Once in a molten state, the glass is formed by blowing and shaping with tools and hand movements.
*Each piece will vary slightly due to the nature of hand blowing
