How’s It Made?
Handcrafted from art glass, we create the Life’s a Beach Standup using multiple steps. First, we cut and polish the clear glass to the appropriate size. Then, we use a mix of glass frits and powders to create the sandy coloured pebbled texture. Then we arrange various shades of blue for the wave. Next, we kiln fire the pieces to melt the powder into the clear glass. This results in the textured surface, allowing the sun to glint off the different angles of the rounded glass. The colour is the glass itself, you won’t ever have to worry about the colour fading or washing off. During the firings, the glass is annealed. Because of this, the strength and durability of the glass is increased, so you know it will easily withstand regular use.
