The production of hand-made and mouth-blown glass is extremely ancient and our friends in Nepal follow the complex techniques previously used by the Romans and by the Venetian glass artists of today.
All the glass in the Galleries has been commissioned and made specially for Alain by the Nepalese glass artists Bharat Adhikari and his partners.
These generously spirited and talented craftsmen produce absolute gems in their small workshop in Nepal by melting glass to extreme temperatures. The intricate patterns and jewel like colours are created by slowly working in and fusing the best quality cobalt for blues, copper for reds and oranges, and more extravagantly, pure silver and pure gold, into the molten glass making each piece quite unique.
