The bet of bubbled glass
The Verrerie de Biot in the Alpes-Maritimes department has bet on bubbled glass, which has become its trademark and signature craft. One of the techniques for keeping bubbles inside the glass rests upon adapting the stages of its firing. Glass melting takes place around 2,732°F (1,500°C) and is generally followed by a refining phase - around 2,552°F (1,400°C) - essentially consisting of ridding the molten glass of the gases that may appear in the form of bubbles. The elimination of the refining process, therefore, allows obtaining distinctive irregular bubbles.
