From fire to glass: Our elaboration process
Origins of glass Fourth Century B.C
Technique of blown glass First century B.C.
The origins of glass are in the Fourth century B.C in Asia, although the technique of blowing glass was invented in First century B.C. Lafiore follows faithfully the work techniques used for more than two thousand years
Two thousand years of “hot” tradition
The furnaces used in antiquity burned with organic materials and the walls were covered with heat-resistant bricks.
The melting furnaces work at a temperature close to 1,200 ºC. The craftsmen take from them an incandescent, beautifully red mass, that is blown and molded before it gets too cold.
Lafiore means innovation, quality and commitment
Lafiore was the first Majorcan company that used new and enviromental furnaces, which allowed to produce original pieces respecting the tradition.
Thanks to innovation, we have created a particular range of artistic glass that adds a characteristic color to the beauty of the design. This color is made of mineral pigments and makes our glassware very worthy.
Lafiore is environment-friendly
In Lafiore we have changed our manufacturing system to adapt and suit the European Community laws of recycling of raw materials.
