For centuries craftsmen have used heat, gravity and centrifugal force to mold beautiful pieces of glass. It is these same forces which shape our classic Thetford Line. The process begins with a large gather of molten glass that is carried to a graphite mold where a precise amount of glass is cut by hand. After a moment of settling and cooling, the mold is spun on the turntable at a high rate of speed. The amount and temperature of the glass is crucial to allow the glass to slowly fill the sides of the mold as it spins. Once filled out, the piece is pulled from the mold and placed in an oven to slowly cool over a period of eight hours. No two pieces emerge from the molds the same. Their unique characteristics are determined by the temperature of the glass, the speed at which they are spun and the skill of the craftsmen who make them.
