What Our Malta Glass Blowers Do
Using traditional, ancient glass-blowing techniques mixed with a unique twist — Maltese glass is an artwork with its own captivating charm. All hand blown in Malta, it uses techniques passed down through the generations and continue to create work that is just as awe-inspiring to this day. Valletta Glass is passionate about maintaining the art of glass-making, preserved through hundreds of years of artisan work. Standing on the shoulders of this vast history, the authentic Maltese glass made at Valletta Glass is always one of a kind.
What makes each piece of Maltese glass art unique is the glass-blowing technique. Every single piece of Valletta Glass has been handcrafted in our workshop. And what makes our glass art even more distinctive and striking is the colours. Maltese glass is famous for its vibrant colours, often delicately and expertly swirled together in the glass-blowing process, creating a striking design — this can be seen across our vast collection of handmade glass but shows beautifully in our glass vases.
Our expert glass blowers in Malta all adhere to traditional glass-blowing techniques and make unique and colourful designs with these skills. Every piece made in the Valletta Glass workshop has been shaped and blown by hand, using the time-honoured technique of blowing through a blowpipe and using tools to alter the shape and design of the piece, which is still extremely hot.
Valletta Glass is renowned for its quality pieces and vibrant colours. The colours seen across the Valletta Glass collection are added through colour glass chips or powders. Upon blending and manipulating, using their expert glass-making skills, our Maltese glass makers create resplendent pieces — ready to add striking colour or design to your home.
