The glass tradition in Provence dates back thousands of years but in Biot everything began in 1956, wnen La Verrerie de Biot created the bubble glass, mastering the bubble and imprisoning it between two layers of glass to transform a defect (a bubble) into a feature of quality, and a signature
For each glass, a breath. For each creation, a presence and an attention. A tradition that will always be avant-garde. These are glasses that the glassblower´s breath shaped, as he drew inspiration from the molten substance, applying his skills and attention to create objects that radiate beauty, harmony and pleasure. Glasses, jugs, chandeliers, vases: unique objects expressing precision and skill that cannot be repeated or reproduced .
Glass does not exist without its master glassblower. Each creation requires special attention, concentration. The master-glassblower is a magician who uses the secrets of earth and fire to create glass!
He is also a craftsman and a great artist: the originality of an approach, an innate sense of volumes and surfaces, and constant creativity.
It takes about 10years to become a master glass-blower
The glasses, jugs and pitchers made in Biot embellish any table. The products come in different colors depending on the seasons and the master glassblowers’ mood.
