A selection of our beautiful glassware

‘In general, archaeological evidence suggests that the first true glass was made in coastal north Syria, Mesopotamia or Ancient Egypt. Because of Egypt’s favorable environment for preservation, the majority of well-studied early glass is found there, although some of this is likely to have been imported.’ (source: Wikipedia)

From ancient Egyptian times to present days, glass making has been a passion for many.  According to al-Biruni; Persian scholar and polymath, regarded as one of the greatest scholars of the eleventh century; traditional glass making was a discipline involving both chemist and artisan.  By observing the glass artisan at work, and through experimentation on compositions, only then was the chemist able to properly discuss and ascertain the different glass colours which arose from metal oxides.

To this day, passionate designers and collectors are drawn to various forms of glass, both within historical and contemporary contexts.  Jam Space carries a variety of vibrant and colourful glassware in all shapes and forms that would add style and elegance to any table, as well as providing an array of colours worthy of al-Biruni’s observations.

Jam Space also carries a selection of glass lights and lamps, which also showcase the many beautiful effects that glass can create.
