The Process of Handcrafted Glassware

Handcrafted from Kiln to Your Table

Handpainted Precious-metal Rims

Select collections are hand painted with 24k gold and genuine platinum, and then each piece is individually set by hand into kilns, where at high temperatures the glass drapes over handmade ceramic molds. Precious metals permanently fuse to the glass during this step, and the glass “slumps” into their mold’s individual patterns, rendering each piece of Annieglass a unique work of art. The 24k gold and genuine platinum reveal our artisans’ individual brush strokes, as well as a slightly distressed appearance  from the organic materials’ movement during kiln fire. These effects are by no means a defect, but rather are intentionally crafted  into every unique Annieglass piece to celebrate the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi—in which asymmetry and “imperfection” enhance beauty.

Annieglass Roman Antique feature handpainted 24K Gold Rims

Every piece reflects the brushstrokes of its maker.

Edgey – Rough Yet Sophisticated

The Edgey collection is perhaps one of Annieglass' finest example of innovative glassmaking and is the result of countless years of experimentation with glass and precious metals.

After edges are hand chipped and painted, each piece is set into a kiln to undergo Annieglass’ unique “slumping” process. In the fiery kiln, chipped glass becomes smooth, losing dangerous sharp edges while retaining dramatic texture, and precious metals permanently fuse to the glass to ensure dishwasher safety.
