Glass & Mirrors
We use a broad range of types of glass in our collection. For glass tableware, which includes drinking glasses, carafes and containers, and decorative objects such as vases, we use soda lime glass. For our heat-resistant glass, borosilicate glass is used. Mirror glass is used for all of our mirrors. For various furniture and lighting products, we use hardened glass such as wired or reeded glass. Some of our lighting is crafted from opal glass. We also use recycled glass for one of our containers.
Soda Lime Borosilicate Glass
Because our glasses are handmade and mouthblown, no two glasses are exactly the same. Therefore, small variations in size and form may occur. All of our glass tableware is dishwasher safe. We always aim for a thin and light expression in our glasses, so even though all glass is dishwasher safe, we suggest to handle them with care and stack carefully in the dishwasher. The remaining soda lime and borosilicate glass items should be washed by hand.
For regular cleaning, use a soft, dry cloth. For heavier stains, use a soft brush with a standard detergent and rinse with a solution of vinegar and water. Finish by wiping with a dry, lint-free cloth. Avoid using chemicals and abrasive cleaners, as these will damage the surface of the glass.
Use a soft, clean damp cloth to clean mirror glass. Each time a mirror is moved, there is a risk of damage, which is why we recommend moving your mirror around as little as possible. Do not allow the edges of the mirror to remain wet for extended periods of time. Do not use acidic or alkaline chemicals on the mirror, and never use abrasive cleaners/powders or steel wool. For a more thorough cleaning, use commercial glass cleaners without ammonia or vinegar.
Opaque glass originated in Venice in the 16th century. The translucent glass used for our lighting products allow for a translucent, soft light. Wipe down with a damp cloth and a drop of mild detergent if needed.
