From raw material to molten glass, Lulu is involved in every stage of the glass-making process. From sourcing the materials to working with glass blowers to create beautiful artefacts. There are several stages of sourcing and production that go into the making of Thames Glass.
Thames Glass is made using local river sands, wood ash, and waste quagga mussel shells sourced from Thames Water. Each of these materials contributes towards the basic chemical components needed within glassmaking.
Once processed by hand, the glass is melted, blown and shaped into the desired shapes working with skilled glassblowers, and then placed into the kiln to anneal.
