In 2003, Natascha and Tobias developed a process, which has been patented, to combine glass and diamonds. Following a long path from idea to mature and sophisticated designs entailed the creation of two independent collections at “Diamonds in Glass”; Tabletop and Bodytop. Through the combination of glass and diamonds, the most exclusive champagne and wine glasses as well as caviar dishes and jewellery were produced, which caused a stir in the world of luxury.
During the production process an expert in precious stones scrutinises every diamond for weight, purity, colour and cut. The high quality and value of the diamonds mean that glass creations and jewellery pieces are only delivered with a full attestation of guarantee. In contrast to most manufacturers of mouth-blown glass items, during the production of “Diamonds in Glass” all the objects are turned by hand without templates or moulds, and blown by mouth. Due to the technique and skill of the glass blower, this results in unique creations, which are a delight to the eye. (The term “lamp glass blower” is derived from the technique used to heat the rough cast glass, which involves agas burner similar to a blowlamp).

“Diamonds in Glass” mainly work with the substantially more resistant borosilicate glass. Due to the addition of boron oxide instead of lead, the glasses are neutral with regard to taste, non-toxic, and are even machine-washable. However, on request wine and champagne glasses are also created from lead crystal glass.
Diamonds, which are well known to be a special form of carbon, burn at a temperature of about 800ºC, while the melting point of borosilicate glass is about 1,200ºC. Utilising the patented process developed by Natascha and Tobias, it has become possible for the glass blower to introduce the diamond into the viscous glass mass and place it in the desired position.

The glass blowers shape every product of a series without a template, yet with miniscule tolerances, making every piece an exquisitely valuable unique creation. Furthermore, the glassware or jewellery can be tailor-made to an individual’s personal taste and requirements. As such different techniques mean that these individual pieces can be provided with your initials or symbols.
