Our Personal Favorite
Some of our favorite designs come from Seedy Glass due to its old-world look that matches perfectly with any kitchen. The waves and seeds (“bubbles”) in the glass are subtle so they do not overpower your kitchen or cabinets, but still noticeable enough that they draw the eyes and compliments of others. The seeds vary in size and the depth at which they are at within the glass. The variance of the seeds and waves in the glass provides a handmade authentic look.
Seedy glass is truly artisan glass that has been around for centuries. Adding bubbles to glass is a technique that was around in the nineteenth century. This technique uses a chemical process for randomness. Petrol or sodium bicarbonate are added to the glass for the bubbling effect. However, other art glass techniques for producing seeds in the glass includes using metal stakes that are heated to extreme temperatures and rolled over the glass.
What To Do with Seedy Art Glass
In Italy, the name for the random bubbles in glass is called “pulegoso”. Developed in the 1920s on the island of Murano by Napoleone Martinuzzi. He crafted unique vases with this technique. This technique was then later developed for flat sheet glass and various other techniques. This type of seeded glass has been used over the years in many unique ways from handcrafted bowls to kitchen cabinet glass.
