With the founding of Rothschild & amp; Bickers, Victoria Rothschild and Mark Bickers wanted to revitalize the craft of glass blowers. And they succeeded. In a small workshop in Hertford (Great Britain), refined glass lamps are produced, which, over the relatively short history of the brand, have become recognizable and popular in many countries.
All models from Rothschild & amp; Bickers are handcrafted. One of the last British glassblowers to work with lighting fixtures, they use ancient artisan techniques and traditional equipment.
The oven, operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, melts glass at a temperature of 1120 degrees Celsius. To blow a ball weighing 3 kg will require the coordinated work of two people. This is the only way to achieve the correct shape. With over 20 years of experience, Victoria and Mark are adept at handling hot glass balls. The workpieces should cool down gradually so that no cracks appear on their surface. For this, future lamps are placed in a special annealing furnace, where the temperature is maintained at a lower temperature than the melting furnace. The next steps are shades polishing, assembly and packaging.
Each Rothschild & amp; Bickers is unique. Both the bespoke models and the solutions available in the company's catalog cannot be reproduced next time in the same way as the previous one. At the same time, manufacturers guarantee first-class quality. In the production process, all technologies are strictly observed, and metal fittings and electrical parts are tested without fail.
According to the owners of the workshop, they really enjoy working on projects and creating designs for new models, but manual work and personal participation in the manufacture of products is a unique experience that allows you to experiment. Sometimes in the process of work the glass itself "suggests" interesting ideas both in color and shape.
Stylish and modern Rothschild & amp; Bickers decorate the interiors of hotels, restaurants, bars, shops and homes in the UK, Europe, USA, Asia and Australia. The pride of the brand is an exclusive chandelier designed for the Hilton hotel in Wembley. This clever composition is composed of 90 huge handcrafted charcoal and amber balls. Lamps, "strung" on the base, provide excellent lighting and create the effect of airiness and lightness.
Unique and inimitable handcrafted lamps by Rothschild & amp; Bickers has already been appreciated by fans of exclusive and thoughtful solutions.
