Facets: Side One

Family means everything at La Soufflerie.  We’re a family-run company after all!  We even consider our employees as extended family.  If you notice some of our products are named after employees current and former: Djamal, Jess with Hat, etc.

Our new collection, Facets, was inspired by the different faces we have throughout life.  A fresh and bright face young in life. A weathered but wise face late in life.  Hence our piece, Youngman/Oldman. Two different sides to the same piece. Youngman/Oldman is homage to the life of a story telling grandfather.  You know the one, with the endless tales of adventures and life back in the day that you’re not sure are true but love to hear.

Baby Head, Jay Head and Moine Head are also some very interesting pieces in this collection.  While not inspired by an actual friends or family members, we are sure they have amazing stories to tell.

Years ago, Sebastien was lucky enough to work on the restoration project of the Saint Sulpice Church in Paris. One day he found these little heads in the basement of the church and was able to keep some of them. The little heads in FACETS today are from the molds he made of the originals.

Now you too can have a little piece of unique Parisian art in your own home!

Candle care

Before lighting your candle, trim the wick to about 1/2-cm in length. This allows the candle to burn more slowly and also avoid unsightly black smoke marks around the edge of the glass.

Every time you burn your La Soufflerie candle, allow it to burn at least until the whole top of the candle is liquid. This will help your candle burn more evenly for each burning session.

After blowing out your candle, re-center and straighten the wick.
When using your candlestick holder, do not let the flame touch the glass. Blow the candle out once it gets close to the candle stick holder. Do not place your candle on a cool surface like marble. If the bottom of the hot candle comes in contact with a cold material, the glass may crack.

Do not burn your candle all the way down. Leave at least 1/2-cm of wax in the container to avoid cracking the bottom.Once you have finished burning your candle, hand wash with warm water and soap until the dried wax melts away. You now have a new La Soufflerie piece to use!

Cleaning care

All plaster and terracotta pieces are not suitable for use with water. You can dust each piece with a dry cloth.

General information

These are entirely made by hand and each creation is unique. Therefore, there may be a slight variation in color, texture, and size between each piece. On the base of each item, you can feel the pontil mark left by the glassblower’s cane. The presence of this mark indicates that the glass was blown freehand. This is the beauty of handmade.

Cleaning care

We do recommend handwashing as much as possible to avoid scratches from the dishwasher and to keep the glass sparkling. But, know that our glassware is dishwasher resistant and can be cleaned in the dishwasher

Colored glass

Pigmented glass is mixed into the furnace during the glassblowing. This means that the glass itself is colored instead of painted. Our glass is durable and no changes or fading occur with continued use over time.
