Old World Colonial™ Full Restoration

The Old World Colonial Full Restoration window glass is crafted using the blown cylinder method. A glassmaker begins by collecting molten glass on the end of a blowpipe. The glassblower then forces air through the pipe and blows the hot glass into a cylindrical mold. Once formed, this tube of glass is swung by hand in large pits to facilitate elongation. The glass is then placed into a kiln where it is split and reheated to flatness. After, it is ready to be cut and used as sheet glass. The ‘Full Restoration’ has an increased distortion with obvious surface characteristics, including cords and bubbles.
