Lustre Glass Pipe

Lustre Glass Pipe

$24.99

The Lustre Glass Pipe is a spoon that is decorated like a ceramic. In ceramics, an artist “paints” a design with a glaze. The glaze is a slurry of ceramic clay and a colorant that combines under extreme heat to create a specific permanent color on the design. Almost mirror like in effect, a Lustre provides a smooth shiny sheen to the glass that will actually change somewhat depending on the angle of incidence of the light you look through, much like dichroic glass.

Similarly, our artists “paint” the glass with a Lustre (just like a glaze) that is a slurry of powdered glass and colorant mixture. At high heat, they combine to create permanent color in the glass. Imperfections in the coating are normal because the emulsion is applied manually with a brush and is denser in the minute imperfections in machine drawn borosilicate. As you use this piece, the layer inside smoothes and amplifies the visible lustre coverage on the outside of the piece.

Unfortunately, imported cheap trash attempts this look with paint. Paint comes off with use and cleaning. Lustre does not. These imported knock offs have given some techniques (like Lustre) a bad name because the importers pass them off as safe when they are not. I specifically use the term “in” the glass (see above) because the colored glass powder fuses to the model permanently, which is not like the poisonous painted “on” crap coming out of China.
