Incalmo Champagne Flute (Purple and Amber)

Jochen Holz
£80
Incalmo Champagne Flutes, in purple and amber, are handmade by glass artist Jochen Holz. Made from borosilicate glass, each unique flute is finished with a coloured stem and foot, contrasting the clear glass used for the main ‘bowl’.
Specialising in the fascinating technique of lamp working (where hot glass is manipulated over an open flame), Jochen Holz is one of the very few glass artists practising this type of glass blowing in Britain. His design approach is guided by the process of making, and the skill of controlling the flow of hot glass. Navigating the possibilities and restrictions of this technique, Jochen’s objects range from free formed textured borosilicate tumblers and vases to coloured incalmo jugs and wine glasses. Due to the unique shape of each piece, we handpick every flute. For specific preferences, please do get in touch.

Process

These pieces are made using a complex and ancient Venetian technique called incalmo. Each piece is made from two, free-blown parts which are simultaneously blown to the same size and thickness before fusing together. Incalmo requires the expert control of the artist in order to ensure each segment fits perfectly. Borosilicate glass is heat resistant so can be used for hot or cold fluids.
