Glassware

High quality glassware has been made in Almeria since the 13th century. There exists an excellent workshop in the fishing village of Roquetas del Mar. In Malaga Province, delicate Moorish patterns are wrought on glass, with glass cutting on blown crystal; there is also production of stained glass windows and Tiffany-inspired lamps.

La Trinidad glass factory in Seville has carried out major research in an area which could be called industrial archaeology, producing many masterful pieces.

There are two workshops producing stained glass in the towns of Bailén and Ubeda, in the Province of Jaen.

Contemporary glassware in Andalucia

In addition to the traditional glassware to be found in Andalucia there are a few contemporary craftspeople with studios across the region, especially in small towns and rural areas.

These contemporary artisans produce hand decorated fused and slumped glass. The work they produce can include platters, jewellery and sculptured pieces.
