The principles at Mdina Glass have remained the same throughout the years: quality products through inventive design, continual development and evolving techniques.

As well as a large showroom, the Ta’ Qali headquarters of Mdina Glass includes the workshop where the items are produced. Our production methods are based on the following techniques: GLASSBLOWING LAMPWORK An ancient craft believed to date back to approximately the last century B.C. We have also developed a number of in-house techniques over the years enabling us to diversify our range of products. A gas fueled torch is used to melt borosilicate glass rods. The lampworker then uses a variety of specialized tools and manual skills to shape the molten glass into intricate objects and figurines. FUSION GLASS ENGRAVING Cold glass pieces are hand-cut to create a tableau. The arrangement is then placed in a kiln and literally fused together. A range of techniques calling on the skills of the craftsman in which a wide variety of patterns, characters or pictures can be engraved into the surface of a piece of glass.

Flower Pots Over the past couple of years, Mdina Glass has been expanding its vast selection of glassware to include practical items for indoor and outdoor living and entertainment. We call this the LIFESTYLE range. The idea behind the LIFESTYLE range is to enrich the environments of our clientele with quality products, colour and innovation. Glass blown, handmade flower pots are just one of our recent LIFESTYLE additions and have already proven extremely popular. They are ideal as decorative items in their own right, indoor or out, and will bring a splash of colour to wherever they are used. Our flower pots are produced with the same level of care, attention and craftsmanship as the more established items we have been producing, and are made from the same high quality raw materials. The selection of pots is available in 14 different colour patterns as well as in solid colours. Each of the 14 colour patterns are available in a choice of two finishes (a glossy, clear finish and frosted) and in 2 sizes. The small pots typically stand at 12cm high whereas the larger pots have a typical height of 14cm*. * It is important to recognise that these items are handmade, so no two pieces are exactly the same and measurements given are an indication rather than precise.
