  • Brand Focus: LSA International

    BRAND FOCUS

    LSA INTERNATIONAL

    The origins of LSA International was founded in fashionable, swinging sixties London with traditional brightly coloured enamelware from native Poland. This insight into artisan dexterity and the potential of the raw materials encouraged creativity, experimenting with different techniques. They began designing unique collections which demonstrated the complexity of glassmaking and reflected a love of entertaining.

    Today they shape and refine LSA International’s identity, continuing the passion for contemporary design and traditional craft, guided by the creativity and innovation around which the company was originally built.

    HANDMADE & MOUTHBLOWN

    Almost all LSA International glassware is handmade. This means that each product is individually mouthblown and hand-finished by skilled artisans. Their designs are brought to life by some of the world’s most talented craftsmen whose skills have been refined and perfected over several generations and the process continue to evolve as they explore new techniques.

    SODA-LIME GLASS

    Almost all LSA handmade glass is produced from soda-lime glass. This 'recipe' is primarily made up of sand, soda ash and lime and is scientifically mixed in the correct proportions to ensure that the texture, consistency, colour and clarity of the finished piece is exactly as desired. This mixture is then heated up to several hundred degrees centigrade in a gas-fired kiln.

This mixture is then heated up to several hundred degrees centigrade in a gas-fired kiln.

    FROM THE KILN

    Once the molten glass has reached the required temperature a team of about 5 workers forms at each window of the kiln. The glassblower will extend a cane into the kiln through the window and with it gather a small ball of molten glass. The cane is withdrawn and he will blow air through it into the glass to form a ball. This is then blown into its mould, which in nearly all cases at LSA is hand-made from wood.

    HAND FINISHING

    There are a number of different finishing techniques, the most skilled of which is to scissor-cut the rim. The top edge of the glass is reheated until it is semi-molten and then the worker will cut away the excess glass around the rim, leaving a thick, rounded, soft-looking finish to the glass.

    ADDING COLOUR

    LSA primarily uses casing, where a layer of clear glass is wrapped round a layer of coloured glass. This gives deep yet transparent colour to the piece and creates a solid 'ice' of glass at the base of a piece. Alternatively, lustre or metallic paints are hand-applied offering numerous options for different tones and shades and yielding a beautifully reflective finish to the glass to bring it to life.
