Manufacturing Process

How it's Made

Each wine glass from Lolita is utterly exclusive — no two glasses are identical, making them a truly thoughtful and unique gift. Every Lolita glass begins life as a sketch drawn by an artist. The glasses are then individually blown using traditional techniques and are hand-crafted, unlike other machine-made, mass-produced glasses on the market. As all of the glasses are artisan blown, very slight variations can occur in the thickness of the rim or the weight of the product — all adding to the charm that is a Lolita wine glass.

The beautiful designs are then achieved by applying multiple individual layers of paint directly onto the glass, requiring separate firings for each application. Depending on the intricacy of the design, this can sometimes require up to thirty-five different firings. In addition, paint is sometimes applied over word decals and on the base of the glass, with up to 100 crystals hand-glued to each wine glass — and up to 400 crystals to each Superbling glass!

Production of Lolita is a painstaking, highly intricate process that is all done by hand — see the process in the video.

How to care for your Lolita glass

Please hand wash only. Never place your Lolita glass in a dishwasher or soak in extremely hot water — we recommend the careful hand washing of your glass for twenty or thirty seconds, and quickly drying it with a soft towel.
