Glassblowing Master, Mr. Paul Said, shares decades of love and passion for the beautiful art of glassblowing. He started as an apprentice at an early age and patiently he formed a team of highly skilled artists who have dedicated their work and artistic creations to what is known today as Valletta Glass. Our art glass creations are brought to life by using exclusively the ancient glass blowing techniques, refined by centuries and passed on from generation to generation by skillful masters. Their commitment to keep alive and pass on the traditional craft is completed by a never-ending pursuit of perfection in shapes, colours, and patterns, which come to enrich the world of blown glass art while still preserving its timeless spirit.
The company dedicates its name to Malta’s capital city, Valletta which was built by Grand Master Jean Parisot de la Vallette who described the city of Valletta as “a city of palaces built by gentlemen for gentlemen”. The hero of the Great Siege of 1565, Grand Master La Vallette planned the fortified city in order to provide adequate defenses. The city has become known as one of the most aristocratic fortress in Europe which has a dedicated square to its Grandmaster named Pjazza Jean de la Vallette inaugurated in 2012. In 1980, the city was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, thus rendering Malta into one of the most attractive places for tourists or movie producers (films such as The Count of Monte Cristo, Gladiator, or the Da Vinci Code have shot scenes in Malta). Valletta is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Malta hosting numerous concerts, plays, street exhibitions, various museums and many other artistic events and venues.
