Glass painting is a form of art that is enjoying a renaissance at Målerås Glassworks. Skilled painters realise the designer’s intentions with their brushstrokes, making each item of glass a unique piece.
After the cast glass at Målerås Glassworks has been sandblasted and painted, the engraver enhances important details and sometimes even sandblasts the glass sculpture once again. Before engraving the glass sculpture is honed and polished in several stages to create the highest gloss before it is ready to be packed and shipped to a customer somewhere in the world.
Before the hot crystal is poured into the finished cast, the mould has been heated to reduce temperature difference and, thus, thermal shock. All casting is done by hand at Målerås Glassworks and demands a high level of competence and knowledge about temperature and the behaviour of melted glass. Målerås Glasbruk uses an exclusive crystal recipe, which picks up reflected light and giving the glass that extra clarity and beauty.
