Ljubljana has practically no history of glassmaking, although Slovenia has some famous glass factories and a glassworks school: I was one of their students. All my products are made of high-quality JENA glass, used for laboratory products. It is extremely hard, less prone to breaking and has a melting point of 1600°C. When this temperature is reached above an open fire, the forming of the glass mass can begin. This is done with pincers, graphite rods, special scissors and other instruments. The glass mass is then formed into end products such as vases, candle holders, animal figurines and jewellery. Whether creative ideas are born spontaneously or carefully planned, they always require a lot of good will and a great deal of effort.
