Manual production of mouth-blown hollow and flat glass is intagible heritage

The techniques of manual hollow glassware and flat glass production require complex knowledge and a wealth of experience. In Germany there are nearly 500 persons with this implicit knowledge. Each mouth-blown glass product begins with the parison, which is overlaid with a layer of glass and further inflated. By rotation, pulmonary pressure and tools perfected over centuries the glassblowers achieve the required form, either freehand or with the help of forms.

To this day, glassmakers are traditionally part of an international network. At the present time mouth-blown glass is, on the one hand, a substrate for artistic and architectural designs and, on the other hand, indispensable for the restoration and production of prototypes, individual small-scale series, special technical applications and unique items.

2016

An Obligation to the future.

Mouth-blown LambertsGlas®: A Product with Respect for the Environment. Glashütte Lamberts Waldsassen is a company with a strong commitment to eco-friendly glass production. The factory invests in advanced green manufacturing technologies and carefully selects environmentally conscious business partners. Glashütte Lamberts is a family owned company with genuine commitment to sustainable products. Lamberts has been practicing their own strict environmental policies since the 1970‘s, years before Germany established industry-wide regulations for environmental protection. It is one of the first glass factories to reduce air pollution with the installation of sophisticated air filtration equipment. Lamberts‘ flue-gas filters capture and eliminate heavy metal emissions produced during the glass melting process. The main raw materials (sand, soda, and limestone) are sourced from regional companies to minimize long transport distances and to reduce the final product‘s carbon footprint. Their most recent efforts improved the firing technology of the furnaces to further increase efficiency and conserve energy.

Lamberts continues its commitment to sustainable development with the active research and implementation of new environmentally sensitive processes and technologies. Future developments include increased conservation of fresh water through water recirculation and treatment within the plant, as well as a rooftop array of photovoltaic cells to supplement the factory‘s electrical requirements. LambertsGlas® is much more than glass and product innovation. It is a product dedicated to environmentally sensitive, eco-friendly life.
