About Blown Glass Collective First he heated the very point of the blowpipe, then snatched from nearby a chunk of bright glass and placed it skillfully within the hollow furnace. And the crystal as it tasted the heat of the fire was softened by the strokes of Hephaistos like…He blew in from his mouth a quick breath…like a man essaying the most delightful art of the flute. The glass received the force of his breath and became swollen out around itself like a sphere before it. It would receive another onslaught of the divine breath, for often, swinging it like an ox-herd his crook he would breathe into…

Creating the Blown Glass Collective With Basil’s more than 30 years of experience in the design industry, there was a natural progression to  designing and selling more hand-blown glass pieces to clients. Hence, he brought his wife CaSandra on board to launch the Blown Glass Collective. CaSandra, who also has a background in design, shares the same passions as Basil. The husband-and-wife team, who have now moved to the east coast of Florida, originally worked for clients residing in Palm Beach. After receiving great feedback on their creations—from the design of each piece to the quality of the glass used—the couple decided to focus all their energies on the business.

Blown Glass Chandeliers Natural glass has been around since the beginnings of time. Early on, historians believe cavemen used obsidian tools and tektites for cutting. Glass was officially created by Phoenician sailors. Ancient-Roman historian Pliny (AD 23-79) suggests shipwrecked sailors built fires on the beach to cook food. With extended heat, the sand would melt creating a hard glass. Potters from Egypt and Mesopotamia used this technique to build vases. The earliest fragments of these glass vases come from the 16th century Mesopotamia. Egypt also developed hollow glass technology during this time.

Glass Making and More in Europe Glass making was virtually nonexistent in Europe during the dark ages. The Middle Ages focused on making stained glass windows for cathedrals and other gothic architecture. Most were used to depict Bible stories. Venice was in the process of becoming the center of the trade industry. The famous Venetian Glassmakers’ Guild was started in the early 1200’s. In 1291, they subsequently moved to Murano. It eliminated the fear of fires associated with the furnaces and allowed for greater control of the glassmaking industry. It took only an hour to paddle from Venice to Murano. As the industry was secretive, though, the glassblowers and their families didn’t leave the island.Today, Murano glass is still known around the world. It can be found in glasses, bowls, vases, and even jewelry. Any time you buy Murano glass now, you get a certificate of authenticity to differentiate between imitators and the real thing.
