to the story of Lauscha and its

glass


Lauscha, for the first time documentarily mentioned in 1597, lies in the midst of the Thuringian Forest. The construction of a glassworks was the beginning of a glass industry which was mainly characterized by its numerous home workshops. Lauscha became the production centre for artistic glass in Thuringia. Apart from use objects and toys jewellery pearls were also produced from glass, which the glassblowers from Lauscha developed the glass Christmas tree decoration from in the middle of the last century.

Lauscha however isn't only famous for his Christmas tree decoration but also for his eyes from glass. In 1835 Ludwig Müller- Uri invented the artificial human eye from glass here in Lauscha. Our family has produced them since 1870. On the left you see my father producing such an artificial human eye from glass.

A further important branch of the glass industry is represented by the art glass blowing. There are no limits of the variety of glass items. Vases, balls, glasses and glass animals are produced as well from solid as from empty glass. You can produce almost everything from glass whether forest animals or fish or elephants or parrots or swans. An artistic glass animal manufactured in front of the lamp is always a special gift idea for every kind of occasions.
