Recycled Glass: Practical, Sustainable, Beautiful

Over the past years, glass has become the first material of choice not only as a healthy and natural material for containing food and beverages, but also as a great example of circular economy. Glass is made initially from three natural, inert, and abundant ingredients: sand, limestone, and soda ash. It is pretty simple to recycle; it has no linings or laminates which need to be separated before the material can be reused. Once made, glass packaging is reusable and 100% recyclable… infinitely! 

In our glass-making process, we use up to 100% recycled glass, which means we reduce the use of raw materials and energy in the process. Recycled glass has a huge impact on our world today. It remains the best-performing closed food loop grade in the world. Glass has a purpose beyond its primary use. It is reimagined and reused in our homes for practically everything.

This is also how we design and create our products. Each vessel is designed to be multi-functional for everyday use. If our pieces break or are not shaped correctly during the blowing process, we melt down and reuse each one of them. You can easily see the subtle nuances of color among each piece. A transparent item can have a greener reflection than another one. Another will be a bit smoky or blue. We love and admire these perfect imperfections. This is the main characteristic of recycled glass; getting to see each piece as it once was, and what it has now become; a beautiful new creation.

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.
