We are Emmi and Antti and together we are BLOUN. We’re more of makers than story tellers, but here’s a little info on what we do.
We create colorful and unique glass pendant and table lamps. What makes them unique is the making process. We use no machines or molds and shape the glass entirely by hand (well actually there’s a wet newspaper between our hands and the 1000°C molten glass). The same way it was done two thousand years ago (not sure if they had newspaper back then). We’re dedicated to maintaining the ancient craft of glass blowing.
As we make the lamps to order you can pick and mix from our wide selection of colors for the shade, cable and other tiny bits. You can do this right here on our website and view the result in real time.
We are passionate about what we do and it shows in our beautifully crafted products. A BLOUN lamp is an accent piece that will bring joy to any home.
ABOUT THE PROCESS
Here’s just a few of the stages (the ones we were able to capture on camera) it takes to make a BLOUN lamp.
