This dome was handmade in Poland. Poland is widely recognized as one of the premier glass making areas in the world. “Hand Mouthblown” is the basic method used by Polish artists which have made the area famous for it’s creative and high quality art glass. Raw material sourced & produced in Poland, is placed in a kiln where it is melted at extreme high temperatures and then moulded by highly skilled artisans to their desired shape. Throughout this long history of glass blowing, skilled men endured the tremendous heat to coax beautiful forms from the fire using nothing more than their breath and a few simple tools. They worked hard to polish their skills to uniformity and precision but even so each creation was as individual as the maker. Until today men and women stand in front of the glaring heat of furnaces and glory holes with a blowpipe in hand and vision in their heads, ready to bring form to the molten liquid before them with their breath and a few tools, roughly the same tools that were used over two thousand years ago.
