The technique of Graal consists of blowing a blank of cased glass into an open receptacle. After cooling, the blank can be carved or etched with sand or acid to create its desired decoration.
The piece is then placed in an oven and gradually reheated in its receptacle to 400.c – 500.c, and picked up once more on a blowpipe or punty iron to be delicately blown and marvered again.
This produces an ornamentation, which is smooth, flowing and entirely integrated into the mass of glass.
This Graal measures approx 27cm tall.
