Glass

Origins

Glass is a combination of sand and other materials, including silica, soda ash and limestone, that are melted together at very high temperatures. Glass chemically has the properties of a liquid, but at room temperature, is so viscous it looks and feels like a solid. At higher temperatures, glass is softer and therefore can be poured, blown, pressed and moulded into any shape.

Properties and qualities

Glass is fragile and naturally transparent but can be coated, heat-treated, engraved and decorated.

How does it feel?

Glass feels firm, and can feel fragile.

Care

We recommend wiping glass clean with a soft dry cloth. For best results, refer to the care instructions on your glass product.
