The colors of Autumn will be pink and violet in different tones. We are going to show some transparent pink and pinky options here and will decide about the standard pink tones soon. The violet colors will be introduced in another post. What´s your favorite pink? We like the helio and the fox light very much.
Bohemia Glass is famous for hundreds of years. Bohemia is a historical country of central Europe, and it was part of Czechoslovakia. Since 1993 it has formed elements of the Czech Republic. As for the long tradition and the well-known name, we call our glass “Bohemia Glass” now because we produce the glass in the Czech Republic where we can get the quality we need as for the long and still existing tradition in glass making. In the end, Bohemia Glass is Czech Glass, which means for you that you will get the best glass quality available adapted to the demand for our products and made by famous Czech Glass companies. We will provide more details about our glass, the glass hoppers and the handmade production soon. We will show the production processes, and we will tell you about the quality and the passion you need to get these extraordinary products. All our new productions are Bohemia Glass / Czech Glass now. More to come soon.
We are busy to produce new glass, new sizes, new patterns for the upcoming season A/W 2019 - more to come soon…
Our TORR Glass Hopper for Eureka Mignon is something the community has been looking forward to for a long time. We are thrilled to welcome the MIGNON Glass at the TORR TOYS portfolio soon. As for this we are going to start a TORRCROWD campaign on 01.04.2019 at https://torrcrowd.myshopify.com/
The campaign is expected to run until end of April, maybe until Mid May to enable the first big batch of hoppers for the Eureka MIGNON ind the beginning of September.
We would like to throw back to see what we have done in the field of glass hoppers in 2018 but we will also introduce the new and upcoming items for 2019.
The year 2018 was a troublesome year where we introduced many new glass hoppers, developed several new glass adapters and also improved many details around the hoppers…Read More
There are many possibilities for glass productions but in the end, it´s about the quality of the mould. You can use wood, graphite, different kinds of metal and of course, each material has its special properties and advantages compared to the others. Usually, wooden moulds are used for tests and small quantities but not all designs are possible here with this material. Metal moulds are used for higher quantities and more stable productions. However, there are glass blowers who only work with wooden molds as for the special and natural appearance of the results and the handmade character you get by using them. We are going to make some tests soon with new high tec materials to enable better surfaces and more stable tolerances for our products. We are curious about the options and results.
The smaller TORR TOYS XS Glass Adapter is available now and we are really happy about this as it is a real beauty with all the high-quality characteristics you might know from the bigger tools. You can see the difference in size between a standard Mazzer MAZ S1 adapter and the M2M below.
There is a new Glass Design/ pattern called "BullsEye". This pattern comes with oval, olive size dots which are made in the hot workshop with the help of an extra mold. The overall character of this glass design is more"raw" than the other designs but looks very natural and stylish, especially when paired with a black lid. We start with the 300 size here and will end up also with other sizes and colors soon. There are more designs to come soon.
After having some problems with the improved production of the quite complicated Mazzer S2/S3 adapters which fit for the Mazzer Kony & ZM (S2) and the Mazzer Robur, Major plus Royal (S3) we are able to finish another batch here in the next days after the polishing process.
This was the first model of the S2/S3 adapters and it was modified to get a more elegant design. 08.08.2018
We prepared some Backstage pictures to see the handmade production and mounting process of the TORR Glass Hoppers. There is a lot more to see, we will provide it every now and then via this Glass Blog or Instagram. The glass production itself can be also seen in the existing gallery: glassproduction
The optics design is made with the help of a second mold which is used before the hot glass is blown in the final mold to reach the correct shape of the hopper. The quantity of the ribs can be changed here to reach different designs. Also, a diagonal optics design is possible on demand, crossed optics pattern as well.
