Measuring approximately 6″ x 6″ by 11″ in height, the Sweater Weather Lantern is a perfect size to enjoy for indoor home decor. The lantern is a delightful tabletop centrepiece. With each side a unique detailed design, the sides can be viewed from any angle, and is sure to be a conversation starter.

How’s it made?
We create this fused glass winter lantern using multiple steps. First, we cut and polish the clear sheet to the appropriate size. Using glass powders, we create the knit pattern in a most sweater-like colour. Next, we cut the pieces for the mug and marshmallows and arrange glass frits as accents. Last, we paint the string for the mittens (did you have one of those too? Do you still..?) and add glass powders for the mitten design. The panels are fired once to fuse the glass together, allowing for the contoured surface. Because the the colours are the glass itself, you won’t have to worry that they will ever fade or wash off.
During the firing process, we anneal the glass to strengthen it for durability. Because of this, you can be sure to enjoy your Sweater Weather Lantern for many years to come.
