The History

Pre-Roman glass making was a method of glass production that involved the use of simple tools and natural materials. This method was used in Europe and the Near East from the 3rd millennium BC until the 1st century AD, when glass blowing was invented. Pre-Roman glass was made by melting sand and/or ash, then adding chemical compounds to create a desired colour and texture. This glass was often used for decoration, jewellery, and ritual items.

Roman glass making, which began in the 1st century AD, was a much more advanced process than its pre-Roman counterpart. Roman glass makers used glass blowing and specialised tools to create beautiful and intricate glass objects. They added metal oxides to the molten glass to create vibrant colours, and used different techniques to shape and decorate the glass. Roman glass was used for dishes, vessels, jewellery, and windowpanes, and it has been found in archaeological sites all the world.


Our Method

In our archaeological series, we use a combination of ancient glass making techniques, as well as modern technology in our glass work for beautiful results.

We combine the application of manual blowing, cutting, grinding and a special coating to successfully create unique and beautiful designs in every piece.

Here at EstudioCiento2, we have many years of experience in glass making, and we are proud to make these beautiful products for you to enjoy!
