Glass workshops of Pohorje
Three centuries ago, the glass workshops called “glažute” melted silica and used it as the raw material to produce glass. Blowing through a long metal blowpipe, which they had to rotate constantly, they formed various glass products.
They produced green – forest, yellowish, brown and blue glass, which they decorated with painted ornaments or by gilding, grinding, engraving or etching. These products were widely known in many European cities.
