If you love handcrafted exquisite glass items, this is the place to go in Langkawi. At Faizy Crystal Glass Blowing Studio, the local artisans create an array of glass make crystal items that are amazingly beautiful. Although glass blowing art picked up in 1990s in Malaysia, this studio in Langkawi was established in 2002. Since then the local craftsmen here have been using manual method to produce the beautiful artwork.
During glass blowing, air is blown into a molten piece of glass to create a bubble and the craftsmen work on that blob of glass to give a delicate shape. It is a time consuming delicate process that requires the blowers to work in a furnace at very high temperatures ranging between 1,300° and 1,400°C, and sustain the radiating heat.
