How’s It Made?
We create the lantern using multiple steps. For the textured sides of the Cherry Blossom Lantern, we prepare a casting mold with a spray to allow the glass to release from the ceramic mold. Next, we layer clear and coloured glass frits onto the texture on the mold. Carefully placing the colours to create blush effect for the blossoms, while ensuring the colours do not react with each other. Once the colours frits are placed, we carefully top the frits with a piece of sheet glass, cut to size and polished. Then, the casting mold is placed into the kiln and fired to fuse the frits and sheet glass together.
We fire the panels at a temperature which ensures the frits capture the texture in the ceramic, but do not misshape the sheet glass.
Because the colours are the glass itself, they can never wash off or fade. During the firing process, we anneal the glass to strengthen it for durability. Because of this, you can be sure to enjoy your Cherry Blossom Lantern decor for many years to come.
