On my recent trip to India, I went to a lot of the factories that produce some of Anthropologies' fantastic soft furnishings & hardgoods.
We went to a mercury glass factory that was mind blowing!! Talk about shiny pretty things.
Not only Christmas baubles of every shape & size, but votives, vases, balls, goblets, trays, trees and even mushrooms.
I love ‘going out the back’ and seeing the mechanisms of these spaces. The firing, the glassblowing, the ‘silvering’ etc. all done before our eyes.
