Glass Incense Bubble

A lovely blown glass incense bubble, handcrafted from borosilicate glass and decorated with a delicate sand dollar sculpted in the hot glass.

Size: 40mm in diameter
Each bubble is supplied with mini incense sticks

Each piece of glass is handcrafted using traditional techniques and tools at Isla's Grey Lynn studio. Every incense bubble the team makes is handcrafted from a long glass tube formed on the blowtorch. It’s a demanding process and a labour of love.

 

Wearing Glass by Isla Osborne 

For Isla Osborne, Wearing Glass started as a part time creative adventure and has developed into a full time passion for creating hand-made glass works. Each piece of jewellery is totally unique, as every piece is made by sculpting molten glass using a blowtorch powered with oxygen and natural gas, and beads are made one at a time, thus every piece of glass tells a story. "Lampworking is an ancient and magical process, with a chemistry that borders on alchemy and as an artist I find its lure irresistible."
Isla lived and worked in London for 10 years, exhibiting internationally before returning to Aotearoa in 2007 to start a family - where the traditional glass studio she works out of is now based, in Grey Lynn. As well as being a family business, the team individually hand-crafts products using techniques that date back thousands of years, and Isla is proud to keep this ancient tradition alive for the next generation of craftspeople.
