The Lyonnais Quinquet glasses are inspired by the annual Fête des Lumières in Lyon, France during which households light votive candles in small glass containers which illuminate the streets. Hand-blown from recycled glass in La Soufflerie's Paris studio and coloured with all-natural pigments so that they will never fade.
We have loved La Soufflerie for many years, and dreamed of stocking their pieces. Their glassware is the perfect marriage of form and function, with elements of raw and rough textures left over from the age-old techniques they use. You can often see where the pieces have been cut off the blowpipe, reiterating how individual and handmade they all are – a rarity in everyday glassware.
