A Magical Journey

"How Lobmeyr Glass Is Made"

LOBMEYR glass is very special. This book shows you what makes it so unique and gives you a peek into the secrets of traditional glassmaking, craftsmanship, and design. Two very special little members of the Flame family will accompany you on this exciting journey—Luzia and Lukas are truly fired up about LOBMEYR crystal.

Children and adults who have always wanted to discover how hand-made glass is traditionally made can now learn about the wonderful process in this lovingly created picture book published by the centuries-old glass manufacturer Lobmeyr. The stars of the magical story are Luzia and Lukas, two little flames who live in the furnace of a Bohemian glassworks. Together with the readers, the two fiery siblings set out to explore first the foundry—where molten glass is masterfully shaped in several phases—then the finishing workshops to observe how the glasses are cut and engraved, and finally the time-honoured Lobmeyr shop in the centre of Vienna’s old town. You will not only discover interesting facts about an ancient craft, but also learn about the history of a traditional Viennese business that once supplied crystal to the imperial court and turned 200 years old in 2023.

“We didn’t want to make a dry presentation folder or yet another flashy production video to introduce people to the secrets of glassmaking,” explains Lobmeyr owner Leonid Rath. Leonid’s sister and artist Louise Rath contributed her charming and informative illustrations, while the story is from the pen of children’s book author Isabella Diessl. Rich in metaphors, this tale of glassmaking is just as interesting and instructive for adult readers as it is for young ones.
