Balinese molten glass on wood products are unique: a beautifully constructed blend of local craftsmanship, tradition and artistry. Here’s a breakdown of the process:

  1. Wood Selection: Artisans use specially chosen wood with interesting shapes and textures, often opting for naturally occurring forms like roots or branches. Gamal wood is known for its durability and is a popular choice.

  2. Glass Preparation: Recycled glass is crushed and placed into a furnace where it is heated to extremely high temperatures, causing it to melt.

  3. Glass Blowing: A skilled glassblower uses a blowpipe to gather molten glass and blow it into a bubble. The glassblowers manipulate the shape using various tools and techniques.

  4. Wood and Glass Fusion: Once blown, the red-hot glass bubble is carefully brought down and positioned onto the prepared wood surface. The intense heat of the glass can slightly char the wood, creating a natural fusion between the two materials. The exact fit is determined by the unique shape of the wood.

  5. Shaping and Finishing: Depending on the desired final form, the glassblower might further shape the glass while it’s still malleable. Once cooled and solidified, the piece may undergo additional finishing touches for a polished look.

It’s important to remember that this is a traditional craft, and the exact steps might vary slightly.
