Mercury Glass the San Miguel way…
If the design of our Mercury glass heart sculptures has caught your eye, it is because it is a design original by San Miguel Collection. This art sculpture is a perfect gift for those who believe in the beauty of second chances. Our unique Mercury glass hearts have a captivating appearance. The glass gets its cracked finish by way of an artisan glass blowing technique that is learning through many years of practice in art form of blowing glass. To give the heart sculpture it's cracked effect, the artisan will allow the glass to cool and then “crackle” the glass to give the look of cracking glass. We only work with the best creative artisans to take recycled glass and transform it into a precious symbol of enduring love.
Artisan Glass Blowing
In the remote city of San Miguel de Allende in Central Mexico, we work with the gifted local artisans to create these little unique treasures. We design the shape of the heart, which the artisans then take and create a mold to blow vibrant colored glass into.
The artisans blow recycled glass that was collected from local recycling yards. Mounds of discarded bottles are delivered by the truck-load to our studios, the glass is then crushed and heated in large kilns where temperatures reach up to 1500*F. Once the molten hot glass is of proper consistency, it is then blown into our signature designed molds. The color dye is added during the heating process, developing the lasting color of the glass art.
