Since opening its doors to become Malta's first glass factory way back in 1968, Mdina Glass has endeavoured to establish and maintain a reputation for artistic innovation, quality and consistency in each and every individual piece of glassware produced by its artisans. The Mdina Glass collection of handmade products, made by its specialist craftsmen, includes myriad items designed to bring light and colour to your home. The most traditional line of products includes vases and bowls, perfume bottles, solid objects, fused glassware (incl. plates, clocks, house names and numbers, frames etc.) and intricate lampwork figurines and shapes.
With the emphasis on innovative, quality glassware, Mdina Glass has introduced a number of other product lines over the years including scented candleholders, lanterns, lighting (incl. lampshades, pendant lights and chandeliers) and tableware.
Mdina Glass has also become known for its range of trophies and corporate gifts with glass engraving. These products are offered from the production portfolio or made to order to a specific design brief.
Various techniques are utilised to create the vast array of artwork. Apart from glassblowing and the free shaping of solid pieces, Mdina Glass artisans have also been at the forefront in the introduction of new techniques on the island, as was the case with lampworking in 1990 and glass fusion in 1995. Whatever the technique utilised, however, each piece of Mdina Glass ultimately reflects the freedom of expression, artistic versatility and fine craftsmanship of its people. None of the company’s glassware is the product of a single person or idea. Its creations bring out the best of the material itself as well as the talents of highly skilled craftsmen and artists who handcraft each and every item.
The exceptional high standard, quality and design interpretation of these glassware products have made them highly sought after by locals, visitors and online clients from around the world. Indeed, Mdina Glass products are getting pride of place in the homes of many who have come to appreciate these as individual masterpieces that can transform the look of one’s home. The infinite variety of items on offer, and the exciting shades and colours in which they are presented, have also made them popular gift options, particularly for weddings and anniversaries.
