From Hot Shop to Tabletop
The journey from our Hot Shop to your table is one of passion, skilled artisanship, and endless precision. Every piece is custom-made using the following steps:
Clear molten glass is pulled from our furnace at 2,130 Fahrenheit by our team of skilled artisans using a blowpipe.
We add color to the hot glass in two ways; using tiny bits of colored glass, called “frit”, for our Fritsy items, and using an overlay – which is how we add sheer color to a clear bubble, to make our illusion pieces. All our color is sourced from Europe and is of the highest quality.
We reheat the glass and blow through the blow pipe into the glass that has been gathered on the end of the pipe. We continue to shape the glass, and blow more air into the pipe until the desired shape is reached. It’s a continual process, a continual back and forth from the furnace to the bench – like an orchestrated dance, where the glassblower works on the piece until it looks just right.
While the glass is still hot, each piece is stamped and branded to show it is a true Saban Glass piece.
For 16-18 hours the piece is cooled down slowly starting at a temperature of 890 degrees Fahrenheit, until it reaches room temperature. This de-stresses and stabilizes the glass and makes it durable.
It is then brought to the cold shop where it’s smoothed and polished to perfection.
We take great care to package your custom piece and make sure it’s delivered to you intact.
Our meticulous process makes incredibly special, one-of-a-kind pieces that are crafted to last. Each and every creation is made with love and detail and will be shipped in 3-5 weeks from the moment you place your order. WE take great pride in our work, and want you to be happy!
