Molten glass is fused with lavender, white and pale blue colors then blown and spun into a Rondelle disk.
The colors are stretched and swept around the rim of the rondelle creating the effect of peering into the center of a whirlpool.
Our Rondelle's are an adaptation of designs that first appeared in the stained glass windows of cathedrals during the middle ages.
Molten glass was blown into a crown or bullion then transferred from the hollow blowpipe to a solid punty rod.
The design was flattened by reheating the crown to high temperature in a furnace then spinning it into a flat disk using centrifugal force
Our Rondelle's are produced exactly as they were 680 years ago when French glass makers began producing crown glass for the first time at Rouen.
