About ELK Rapture
Individuality is what defines this exquisite line of hand-blown glass. This ancient technique of fine craftsmanship ensures that quality and originality is at the heart of every piece. Each piece is meticulously hand blown with up to three layers of uncompromising beauty and style. This art is performed only by skilled craftsmen who uphold the highest standards to ensure a unique identity throughout each layer. This special technique of layering allows the light to spread evenly across the glass resulting in a warm glow over the entire surface. The glass pendants in this section feature deep rich colors and a heavier hand-crafted look and feel. To achieve this, special production methods are used. First, the initial layers of glass are blown. While the glass is molten, secondary molten glass strips and pieces of contrasting colors, shapes, and sizes are applied in random patterns and melted into the original layers of glass. This process fuses the different layers of glass together causing the piece of it to become thicker and also allows the artist to form the glass into a more naturally flowing shape.
