Process and handwork of glass processing at GUAXS.
At GUAXS, the distinctive character and quality of all objects begins during the process of creation. Both the selection of materials and the choice of manufacturers and cutters are made with the highest care. Mastery of exceptional craftsmanship and years of experience play a central role in this selection. In addition, all our manufacturers come from countries where the craft has a long tradition. Only years of learning special practices and techniques can
result in a product that meets our level of quality.
The inspiration for our work comes from the deep study of different cultures and the tracing of their common characteristics from ancient to modern times.
In line with this work principle, we strive to preserve the craft and its local tradition.
Another quality feature of all GUAXS objects is their individual appearance. Each form is characterized by a variety of inspirations and the expression
of one' s own creativity. All glass objects are mouth-blown and are produced purely by hand. Even the finishing of the surface is done individually by hand. Our GUAXS objects are mainly produced in small, exclusive factories.
It takes many preliminary steps before the glassblower can blow the hot glass into a GUAXS mold.
First of all, a metal mold must be made by hand for each piece, which corresponds exactly to our GUAXS shape. Because of the sophisticated and characteristic shapes GUAXS is known for, such a special metal mold can only be created by the best craftsmen.Glass blowing in GUAXS shapes requires
the highest level of skill and concentration and can only be done by experienced craftsmen. Especially when it involves multiple layers of colored glass, uniquely combined by GUAXS. Small bubbles that appear in the process are natural traces of handwork. After days of cooling, the various phases of grinding and polishing follow.
After different grinds have been developed and tried out in the design process, they now find their way into use.
In several intricate and careful steps, the glass surface is cut by hand. This gives the object its individual structure and unique character.
Every single GUAXS shape is a unique object, a one-of-a-kind piece of the highest craftsmanship.
