We have used a special optical mold to make the vivid colours and smooth stripes on the sides of the two ornament balls of each piece. Every Orient is handblown of 1100 degrees hot glass by two skilled glassblowers. There are plenty to do: Marjut usually makes the two spheres with Aino's help. Aino makes the beads and the glass drop, and afterwards Marjut weaves everything together with galvanized metal wire.
The length of every individual Orient piece may vary a little, being about 60cm. The biggest sphere is about 10cm by the diameter.
We ship a natural light brown cotton string for hanging the piece without a charge. If you rather have a white or black string with your piece please let us know it in a message when you are buying the product. We'll be happy to change it for you, also without a charge.
The story of the Orients began from the beautiful bright red colour. The Soda Shop Design glassblowers had a vision of a gorgeous combination of several glass ornaments put together as an interior design eye-catcher. Somehow it came to their minds whether it was possible to join more than one glass pieces together into one unity. They started to make plans and finally the ready design was a combination of two handblown glass ornament balls, several lamp-worked glass beads and a handicrafted glass drop. When the first piece was put together it brought to mind oriental shapes. Hanging by a window it looked like it was floating in the air as a Chinese sky-lantern carrying hopes and wishes. It was clear that the name of the art work would be Orient. Later on the Orient family has gotten bigger and there are several amazing colours available along with oriental red Orients.
