Brook Drabot Glass is an eponymous brand that creates nature inspired handmade glass.
Working out of her home studio, Brook's artistic process begins when she imagines and sketches a piece. She uses three different sizes of oxygen and propane-fuelled torches to melt and blow the glass using a flame working technique to bring her creations to life. By using borosilicate (scientific) glass and slowly cooling each piece in a kiln, she ensures each piece is as durable as it is beautiful.
What is Borosilicate glass and why does Brook use it?
Borosilicate is another term for scientific glass. Using this type of glass allows Brook to work in fine detail and capture the feeling of motion and softness within an extremely hard material. Borosilicate glass will not crack under extreme temperature changes like regular glass would... bonus points for durability!
